Source: US-CERT

Systems Affected

* Oracle E-Business Suite 11i, 11.5.1 through 11.5.8

Overview

A vulnerability in the Oracle’s E-Business Suite allows a remote
attacker to execute arbitrary script on a vulnerable database system.
Exploitation may lead to compromise of the database application, data
integrity, or underlying operating system.

I. Description

Oracle E-Business Suite is a set of applications and modules that
enables an organization to manage customer interactions, deliver
services, manufacture products, ship orders, collect payments, and
other tasks using a single database model.

According to the Oracle Security Alert 67, Oracle Applications 11.0
(all releases) and Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i, 11.5.1 through
11.5.8 are vulnerable to SQL injection vulnerabilities. Oracle
E-Business Suite Release 11.5.9 and later are not vulnerable. This
vulnerability is not platform specific. Integrigy Corporation has also
released an alert about these vulnerabilities.

Note that no authentication mechanisms of Oracle E-Business Suite will
mitigate exploitation of the attack.

US-CERT is tracking this issue as VU#961579.

II. Impact

An unauthenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability to
execute arbitrary SQL statements on the vulnerable system with the
privileges of the Oracle server process. In addition to compromising
the integrity of the database information, this may lead to the
compromise of the database application and the underlying operating
system.
