IBM DB2 Java stored procedure buffer overflow
|db2-javasp-bo (76286)||High Risk|
IBM DB2 is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking. By creating a specially-crafted Java stored procedure on the DB2 instance and sending an overly long string, a remote authenticated attacker with CREATE PROCEDURE privileges could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges or cause the server to crash.
Refer to IBM Security Bulletin 1607628 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
