Error description

  • If the DB2 database server is configured to use LDAP-based
    authentication and group lookup functionality through the use of
    LDAP security plug-in modules (IBMLDAPauthserver) and the LDAP
    server is configured to allow anonymous binds then it is
    possible for an attacker to exploit the anonymous bind to
    connect to DB2 databases without a valid password.
    
    This problem is not applicable if the LDAP server does not allow
    anonymous bind.
