Oracle Database Server Multiple Vulnerabilities (Jan 2019 CPU)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 121253

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Oracle Database Server is missing the January 2019 Critical Patch Update (CPU). It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An authenticated remote database takeover vulnerability exists in the Oracle RDBMS. An authenticated, remote attacker with the Create Session, Execute Catalog Role privileges can exploit this via the Oracle Net protocol to take over the back-end database, resulting in the disclosure or manipulation of arbitrary data.
(CVE-2019-2406)

- An authenticated local database takeover vulnerability exists in the Oracle RDBMS. An authenticated, local attacker with the Local Logon privilege can exploit this, by convincing another user to perform an unspecified action, to take over the back-end database, resulting in the disclosure or manipulation of arbitrary data. (CVE-2019-2444)

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in the Oracle RDBMS. An authenticated, remote attacker with the Create Session, Create Procedure privileges can exploit this issue, via multiple network protocols, by convincing another use to perform an unspecified action, to cause the Java VM to stop responding.
(CVE-2019-2547)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Apply the appropriate patch according to the January 2019 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
