IBM DB2 9.8 < Fix Pack 4 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9195


The remote IBM DB2 database server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


Versions of IBM DB2 9.8 earlier than Fix Pack 4 are potentially affected by multiple issues :

- A flaw exists in the high availability 9.5 upgrade scripts that is due to them automatically installing into the '/usr/sbin/rsct/sapolicies/db2' directory with insecure permissions. (OSVDB 123604)
- A flaw exists that is due to Monitor Administrative Views (in sysibmadm schema) being readable by the public. This may allow a remote attacker to gain access to potentially sensitive information. (OSVDB 123605)


Upgrade to IBM DB2 9.8 Fix Pack 4 or higher.
