DB2 - Problem description

Problem IC71413 Status: Closed

Users able to update statistics for tables without appropriate privileges

Problem description:
Users are able to incorrectly update statistics columns 
in SYSSTAT.TABLES for tables upon which they do not have 
appropriate privileges.  Thus, a malicious user may be able to 
introduce query performance degradations by modifying table 
statistics via this view. 
Normally, in order to update the statistics for a 
table via this view, you must have CONTROL or explicit 
DATAACCESS privilege on the table.    This APAR fix addresses 
this problem.
Problem Summary:
* USERS AFFECTED:                                              * 
* DB2 Version 9.5 GA through to Fix Pack 6 servers on Linux,   * 
* Unix and Windows platforms.                                  * 
* PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         * 
* A user may gain unauthorized access to the catalog data in a * 
* SYSSTAT view.                                                * 
* RECOMMENDATION:                                              * 
* Apply DB2 Version 9.5 Fix Pack 7 and run the db2updv95       * 
* utility.                                                     * 
Local Fix:
Revoke UPDATE privilege from PUBLIC on the SYSSTAT.TABLES view 
until this APAR is applied. Namely, run: 
revoke update on sysstat.tables from public 
You may continue updating statistics with appropriate privileges 
via the SYSCAT.TABLES view if needed, which is not affected by 
this problem.
