    Researchers at NGSSoftware have discovered a high risk vulnerability
    in IBM's DB2 Universal Database Version 8.1 and earlier.

    IBM has just released Fixpak 8 for DB2 UDB 8.1 which addresses the
    security flaw

    http://www-306.ibm.com/software/data/db2/udb/support/downloadv8.html

    NGSSoftware are going to withhold details about this flaw for three
    months. Full details will be published on the 9th of May 2005. At
    that time an updated advisory will be published at

    http://www.ngssoftware.com/advisories/db2-09-05-05.htm

    No updated advisory will be posted to the security mailing lists.

    This three month window will allow DB2 database administrators the
    time needed to test and apply the Fixpak before the details are
    released to the general public. This reflects NGSSoftware's new
    approach to responsible disclosure.

    NGSSQuirreL for DB2, NGSSoftware's advanced vulnerability assessment
    scanner and security manager for IBM DB2, has been updated to check
    for and positively identify this flaw in DB2 database servers on the
    network. More information about NGSSQuirreL for DB2 can be found at
