Synopsis :

The remote database service allows arbitrary code execution.

Description :

According to its version number, the Oracle listener program (tnslsnr)
on the remote host has a problem with the 'SET TRC_FILE' and 'SET
LOG_FILE' commands. An attacker can leverage this issue to log
arbitrary data to arbitrary files subject to the permissions under
which the listener program operates, corrupting existing files or
creating new ones.

In addition, it is also subject to attacks that can shut down or crash
the listener.
