IBM DB2 Remote DoS during CONNECT processing

AppSecInc Team SHATTER Security Advisory:
http://www.appsecinc.com/resources/alerts/db2/2006-09-05.shtml 

Affected versions: All versions of IBM DB2 Database Server

Risk level: Medium

Credits: This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Vivek
Rathod of Application Security Inc.

Details:
When connecting to a remote DB2 instance, the version 7 client typically
sends a SQLJRA packet requesting start of the connection. If this SQLJRA
packet is specially crafted, it can cause a DoS attack by crashing the
DB2 instance. Altering a few bytes at specific offsets in the packet
exposes multiple NULL/invalid pointer dereference bugs in the server code.
For example, on Windows, if 0x00 is used at any of these offsets, the
sqle_db2ra_as_con_database function (from DB2ENGN.DLL) attempts to
access NULL or invalid memory locations, causing an unhandled access
violation (0xC0000005). This causes the DB2 instance to crash.

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

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

Fix:
To fix the problem apply the fixpak 13 for DB2 version 8.1 (same as 8.2 FP6)
