Description
***********
Informix Dynamic Server is a database developed by IBM. During a security
assessment of Informix multiple file creation/write/read issues were
discovered.

Details
*******
The LOTOFILE function and rlt_tracefile_set functions can be used to create
and write to files. The SET DEBUG FILE can also be used to create and write
to files.

Fix Information
***************
IBM was alerted to this flaw on the 6th January 2005. Patches have now been
made available; further a workaround is to revoke public execute permission
of the functions involved. There is no workaround for the set debug file.

NGSSQuirreL for Informix, an advanced vulnerability assessment scanner
designed specifically for Informix, can be used to accurately determine
whether your servers are vulnerable to this flaw. More information about
NGSSQuirreL for Informix can be found here
