Error description

  • There is a security vulnerability in the DB2 Administration
    Server (DAS) which a malicious user can remotely
    exploit to gain elevated privilege or to cause a denial of
    service.
    
    This vulnerability does not apply to DAS running on the
    Windows platforms.
    
    This problem was reported to IBM by an anonymous researcher
    working with the iDefense Vulnerability Contributor Program
    (VCP).
    

Local fix

  • DB2 installs DAS by default. However, DAS is only required for
    using the Control Center tools or performing remote
    administration.  If you do not use these features then do not
    enable DAS.
