IBM DB2 9.8 < Fix Pack 5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9196

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of IBM DB2 9.8 earlier than Fix Pack 5 are potentially affected by multiple issues :

- A flaw exists in relational data services that is due to privileges persisting when they're removed from users. This may allow attackers to execute non-DDL statements after their privileges have been revoked. (OSVDB 125198)
- A flaw exists that is triggered when Self Tuning Memory Manager (STMM) is enabled and DATABASE_MEMORY is set to AUTOMATIC. This may allow a local attacker to potentially cause a crash. (OSVDB 125199)
- 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 vulnerability 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 RelationalDatabase Architecture (DRDA) that can allow denial of service conditions when processing certain request. (CVE-2012-2180)

Solution

Upgrade to IBM DB2 9.8 Fix Pack 5 or higher.
