Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher Multiple Vulnerabilities (Apr 2021 CPU)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 148980

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher or Oracle Analytics Server 5.5 running on the remote host is 11.1.1.9.x prior to 11.1.1.9.210215, 12.2.1.3.x prior to 12.2.1.3.210405, 12.2.1.4.x prior to 12.2.1.4.210402, or 12.2.5.5.x (OAS 5.5) prior to 12.2.5.5.210331. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in the April 2021 Critical Patch Update advisory, including the following:

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Analytics Server component of Oracle BI Enterprise Edition subcomponent Apache Spark. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via HTTP, to take over Oracle BI Enterprise Edition. (CVE-2020-9480)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the BI Platform Security component of Oracle BI Enterprise Edition subcomponent OpenSSL. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via HTTPS, to hang or repeatedly crash the product. (CVE-2020-1971)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the BI Platform Security component of Oracle BI Enterprise Edition subcomponent Apache Tomcat. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via HTTP, to result in unauthorized update, insert, or delete access to some of Oracle BI accessible data, as well as unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle BI accessible data. (CVE-2019-0221)

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 April 2021 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
