IBM Informix Dynamic Server version 11.50 suffers from a stack overflow vulnerability. The specific flaw exists within the oninit process bound to TCP port 9088 when processing the arguments to the COLLATION option in a SQL query. User-supplied data is copied into a stack-based buffer without proper bounds checking resulting in an overflow.
