Oracle Application Server < 10.1.0.0.3 Privilege Escalation

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows for the bypassing of authentication.

Description

The remote host is running the Oracle Application Server. This version is reported vulnerable to a privilege escalation flaw. Specifically, users with the 'create job' privileges can obtain administrative access to the database. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need a valid account that had the ability to create new database jobs. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker being able to read or write confidential data.
