Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks DB2 signature

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote database server is affected by multiple issues.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of DB2 on the remote host
may crash when processing specially-crafted SQLJRA packets because it
tries to dereference a NULL pointer in the function
'sqle_db2ra_as_recvrequest'. A remote attacker can send such packets
without authentication to deny service to legitimate users of the
application.

In addition, the fenced userid may be able to access directories
without proper authorization.
