high Nessus Plugin ID 59904


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its version, the installation of DB2 9.7 running on the remote host is prior to Fix Pack 6. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A local user can exploit a vulnerability in the bundled IBM Tivoli Monitoring Agent (ITMA) to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2011-4061)

- An authorized user with 'CONNECT' and 'CREATEIN' privileges on a database can perform unauthorized reads on tables. (CVE-2012-0709)

- An unspecified error in the DB2 Administration Server (DAS) can allow remote privilege escalation or denial of service via unspecified vectors. Note that this issue does not affect Windows hosts. (CVE-2012-0711)

- An authorized user with 'CONNECT' privileges from 'PUBLIC' can cause a denial of service via unspecified methods related to DB2's XML feature. (CVE-2012-0712)

- An unspecified information disclosure error exists related to the XML feature that can allow improper access to arbitrary XML files. (CVE-2012-0713)

- An error exists related to the Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA) that can allow denial of service conditions when processing certain request.


Apply IBM DB2 version 9.7 Fix Pack 6 or later.
