Summary

The IBM InfoSphere Balanced Warehouse C3000, C4000, IBM Smart Analytics System
1050, 2050, 5600, 5710, 7600, 7700, 7710 and IBM PureData System for 
Operational Analytics ship with either IBM DB2 Version 9.7, Version 10.1, or 
Version 10.5. IBM DB2 contains known vulnerabilities which affect the ALTER 
TABLE statement.

Vulnerability Details

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-6209

DESCRIPTION:

IBM DB2 contains a denial of service vulnerability. A remote, authenticated 
DB2 user could exploit this vulnerability by executing a specially-crafted 
ALTER TABLE statement on an identity column. This may cause DB2 server to 
terminate abnormally. To exploit the vulnerability, the malicious user needs 
to have valid security credentials to connect to DB2 and the authorization 
associated with the authorization ID of the connection would need to match one
of the authorization scenarios listed below. Note that these authorities or 
privileges could be obtained by membership in a group or by assignment of 
certain role.

1) CONTROL or ALTER privilege on a table

The user would need either CONTROL or ALTER privilege on a table to execute 
the ALTER TABLE statement. Customer could consult the SYSCAT.TABAUTH table to
determine the users, roles, and groups that have CONTROL privilege or ALTER 
privilege on a table. Furthermore, the owner of a table has implicit control 
privilege and the DBADM authority has implicit control privilege on all 
tables. Customer could look up owner of a table from the SYSCAT.TABLES table.

2) ALTERIN privilege on any schema that contains a table

User with this privilege could execute ALTER TABLE statement on any table in 
the schema. Customer could consult the SYSCAT.SCHEMAAUTH table to check for 
users, roles, and groups with this privilege. Also, customer could check the 
SYSCAT.TABLES for existence of tables in the schema.

3) CREATETAB authority on a database and USAGE privilege on at least one table
space

With this authority, the user could create a table and then execute ALTER 
TABLE statement on that table. Customer could lookup the SYSCAT.DBAUTH table 
to find out users, roles, and groups with CREATETAB authority and check the 
SYSCAT.TBSPACEAUTH table for users, roles, and groups with USAGE privileges on
table spaces.

CVE ID: CVE-2014-6210

DESCRIPTION:

IBM DB2 contains a denial of service vulnerability. A remote, authenticated 
DB2 user could exploit this vulnerability by issuing multiple ALTER TABLE 
statements on the same column. This may cause DB2 server to terminate 
abnormally. To exploit the vulnerability, the malicious user needs to have 
valid security credentials to connect to DB2 and the authorization associated
with the authorization ID of the connection would need to match one of the 
authorization scenarios listed below. Note that these authorities or 
privileges could be obtained by membership in a group or by assignment of 
certain role.

1) CONTROL or ALTER privilege on a table

The user would need either CONTROL or ALTER privilege on a table to execute 
the ALTER TABLE statement. Customer could consult the SYSCAT.TABAUTH table to
determine the users, roles, and groups that have CONTROL privilege or ALTER 
privilege on a table. Furthermore, the owner of a table has implicit control 
privilege and the DBADM authority has implicit control privilege on all 
tables. Customer could look up owner of a table from the SYSCAT.TABLES table.

2) ALTERIN privilege on any schema that contains a table

User with this privilege could execute ALTER TABLE statement on any table in 
the schema. Customer could consult the SYSCAT.SCHEMAAUTH table to check for 
users, roles, and groups with this privilege. Also, customer could check the 
SYSCAT.TABLES for existence of tables in the schema.

3) CREATETAB authority on a database and USAGE privilege on at least one table
space

With this authority, the user could create a table and then execute ALTER 
TABLE statement on that table. Customer could lookup the SYSCAT.DBAUTH table 
to find out users, roles, and groups with CREATETAB authority and check the 
SYSCAT.TBSPACEAUTH table for users, roles, and groups with USAGE privileges on
table spaces.
