IBM DB2 9.5 <= Fix Pack 9 or 10 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 76113


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its version, the installation of IBM DB2 9.5 running on the remote host is prior or equal to Fix Pack 9 or 10. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by one or more of the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified error exists related to handling malformed certificate chains that could allow denial of service attacks. (CVE-2013-6747)

- A build error exists related to libraries in insecure locations that could allow a local user to carry out privilege escalation attacks. Note this issue does not affect the application when running on Microsoft Windows operating systems. (CVE-2014-0907)

- An unspecified error exists related to the TLS implementation that could allow certain error cases to cause 100% CPU utilization. (CVE-2014-0963)


Contact the vendor to obtain a special build with the interim fix.

Note that the vendor has posted a workaround for the build error issue (CVE-2014-0907) involving the command 'sqllib/bin/db2chglibpath'.
Please consult the advisory for detailed instructions.
