IBM Informix Dynamic Server CVE-2012-4857 Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

IBM Informix Dynamic Server is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary-checks on user-supplied data before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer.

An attacker with authenticated access to the database can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code or cause the database to crash within the context of the affected server, denying service to legitimate users.
