Team SHATTER Security Advisory

Multiple DoS in JAR files manipulation procedures

April 17th 2008

Risk Level: High

Affected versions: All versions of IBM DB2 Database Server on Windows platform.

Remote exploitable: Yes (Authentication to Database Server is needed)

Credits: These vulnerabilities were discovered and researched by Ariel Sanchez of Application Security Inc.

Details: DB2 has multiple vulnerabilities which can lead to Denial of Service (DoS) attacks against the instance. When RECOVERJAR and REMOVE_JAR procedures are called with a specially crafted parameter the DB2 instance crashes. Any DB2 database user can exploit these vulnerabilities since PUBLIC permissions are granted to both procedures by default. The RECOVERJAR and REMOVE_JAR procedures are installed by default.

Impact: Any remote authenticated attacker can crash the DB2 instance.

Vendor Status: Vendor was contacted and a patch was released.

Fix: To fix the problem apply the FP16(v8), FP4a(v9.1) and FP1(v9.5):

APAR: IZ08945 - V8 FP16 IZ08512 - V9.1 FP4a IZ15496 - V9.5 FP1

Timeline: Vendor Notification - 9/11/2007 Vendor Response - 11/14/2007 Fix - 4/15/2008 Public Disclosure - 4/17/2008
