ibm-db2-cve20136717-dos (89116) The risk level is classified as LowLow Risk

Description:

Multiple IBM DB2 products are vulnerable to a denial of service. A vulnerability in the DB2 OLAP query engine could allow a remote authenticated attacker to cause the DB2 server instance to terminate all connections to a database and deactivate the database. This only affects the database that the user is connected to and does not shut down the DB2 server instance.
