Db2 should allow binding its port 50000 on windows to localhost only.
Db2 currently doesn't allow binding its port 50000 on windows to localhost only, this port is left as open port and can be connected from other machines, unauthorized users can exploit this information to test vulnerabilities in the open service and this may lead to vulnerabilities. Since we don't use remote connection to Db2, we should have the ability to bind its port to localhost only for security reason. And Qualys scan did flagged this in the open TCP services list.
