IBM DB2 9.7 < 9.7 Fix Pack 2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5556
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote IBM DB2 database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


Versions of IBM DB2 9.7 earlier than Fix Pack 2 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- If the database configuration parameter 'AUTO_REVAL' is set to 'IMMEDIATE', system granted privileges are note regenerated. (IC67008)
- 'Monitor Administrative Views' available in the SYSIBMADM schema are publicly viewable. (IC67819)
- A weakness in the SSL v3 / TLS protocol involving session renegotiation may allow an attacker to inject an arbitrary amount of plaintext into the beginning of the application protocol stream, which could facilitate man-in-the-middle attacks. (IC68055)
- By sending a specially crafted packet to Tivoli Monitoring Agent (KUDDB2) listening on TCP port 6014, it may be possible to trigger a denial of service condition. (IC68762)


Upgrade to IBM DB2 9.7 Fix Pack 2 or higher.
