IBM DB2 9.7 < Fix Pack 9a Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 76114
SynopsisThe remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its version, the installation of DB2 9.7 running on the remote host is prior to Fix Pack 9a. It is, therefore, affected by one or more of the following vulnerabilities :
- An unspecified error exists related to handling malformed certificate chains that allows denial of service attacks. (CVE-2013-6747)
- A build error exists related to libraries in insecure locations that allows a local user to carry out privilege escalation attacks. Note that 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 allows certain error cases to cause 100% CPU utilization. (CVE-2014-0963)
SolutionApply IBM DB2 version 9.7 Fix Pack 9a or later.
Alternatively, in the case of DB2 Version 9.7 Fix Pack 8, 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'.
