2) An unspecified error exists related to the DB2FMP process. No further information is currently available.

This is related to vulnerability #3 in:
SA29784

3) An unspecified error in the DB2JDS service can be exploited to cause a crash via specially crafted packets.

5) An error in "INSTALL_JAR can be exploited to create or overwrite arbitrary files on the system.

6) Views and triggers are not dropped and marked inoperative within the Native Managed Provider for .NET if the definer cannot maintain the objects.

7) An unspecified error can be exploited to connect to DB2 databases without a valid password if ldap-based authentication is used and the LDAP server allows anonymous binds.

The vulnerabilities are reported in IBM DB2 version 8 prior to Fixpak 17.
