critical Nessus Plugin ID 136091
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

An application running on the remote host is affected by multiple security vulnerabilities.

Description

Oracle WebCenter Sites component of Oracle Fusion Middleware is vulnerable to multiple vulnerabilities :

- A deserialization vulnerability exists in the Oracle WebCenter Sites component of Oracle Fusion Middleware (subcomponent: Advanced UI (Apache Groovy)) due to a lack of isolation of object deserialization code. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via HTTP, to execute arbitrary code on the target host.
(CVE-2016-6814)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Oracle WebCenter Sites component of Oracle Fusion Middleware (subcomponent: Advanced UI (Apache Commons FileUpload)) due to an unspecified reason. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass authentication and execute arbitrary commands.
(CVE-2016-1000031)

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in the Oracle WebCenter Sites component of Oracle Fusion Middleware (subcomponent: Third Party Tools (Apache Batik)) due to an issue with deserialization. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via HTTP, to cause the application to stop functioning properly. (CVE-2018-8013)

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in the Oracle WebCenter Sites component of Oracle Fusion Middleware (subcomponent: Advanced UI (Spring Framework)) due to an issue handling range requests with a high number of ranges, wide ranges that overlap, or both. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via HTTP, to cause the application to stop responding. (CVE-2018-15765)

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

Solution

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