This also includes a fix for the Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption (POODLE) SSLv3 vulnerability (CVE-2014-3566). These were disclosed as part of the IBM Java SDK updates in October 2014. Vulnerability Details CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3566 DESCRIPTION: Product could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a design error when using the SSLv3 protocol. A remote user with the ability to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack could exploit this vulnerability via a POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption) attack to decrypt SSL sessions and access the plaintext of encrypted connections. CVSS Base Score: 4.3 CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/97013 for the current score CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N) CVEID: CVE-2014-6457 DESCRIPTION: An unspecified vulnerability related to the JSSE component has partial confidentiality impact, partial integrity impact, and no availability impact.

CVSS Base Score: 6.9 CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/97138 for the current score CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C) Affected Products and Versions IBM DB2 Recovery Expert for Linux, UNIX, and Windows version 188.8.131.52 through 184.108.40.206 Remediation/Fixes You must replace the IBM Runtime Environment, Java Technology Edition that is installed with IBM DB2 Recovery Expert for Linux, UNIX, and Windows with the latest IBM Runtime Environment, Java Technology Edition. Detailed instructions are provided in the tech-note "Updating the JRE for DB2 Recovery Expert for Linux, UNIX and Windows". IBM recommends that you review your entire environment to identify areas that enable the SSLv3 protocol and take appropriate mitigation and remediation actions. The most immediate mitigation action that can be taken is disabling SSLv3. You should verify disabling SSLv3 does not cause any compatibility issues. Workarounds and Mitigations None.
