This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote database server is affected by directory traversal flaws.

Description :

According to its version number, the installation of Oracle on the
remote host is reportedly subject to multiple directory traversal
vulnerabilities that may allow a remote attacker to read, write, or
rename arbitrary files with the privileges of the Oracle Database
server. An authenticated user can craft SQL queries such that they
would be able to retrieve any file on the system and potentially
retrieve and/or modify files in the same drive as the affected
application.
