CVE-2007-3181 and probably can be used.
The following is the list of modules:

for CVE-2007-3181 or if one of the other existing modules covers that case.

Despite being an old vulnerability (2007), in an old version (firebird <

That CVE (2007-3181) is not currently on the TODO list. However, you
may want to investigate the various InterBase modules, including
From memory, those vulnerabilities in InterBase were due to a bundled
version of the Firebird Database.
I filed a ticket in the MSF Redmine to track clarifying etc. It is
