Synopsis

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities

Description

The versions of Oracle Database Server installed on the remote host are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the October 2021 CPU advisory.

- Vulnerability in the Zero Downtime DB Migration to Cloud component of Oracle Database Server. The supported version that is affected is 21c. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows high privileged attacker having Local Logon privilege with logon to the infrastructure where Zero Downtime DB Migration to Cloud executes to compromise Zero Downtime DB Migration to Cloud. While the vulnerability is in Zero Downtime DB Migration to Cloud, attacks may significantly impact additional products. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Zero Downtime DB Migration to Cloud. (CVE-2021-35599)

- Vulnerability in the Java VM component of Oracle Database Server. Supported versions that are affected are 12.1.0.2, 12.2.0.1, 19c and 21c. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows low privileged attacker having Create Procedure privilege with network access via Oracle Net to compromise Java VM. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Java VM. (CVE-2021-35619)

- Vulnerability in the Oracle LogMiner component of Oracle Database Server. Supported versions that are affected are 12.1.0.2, 12.2.0.1 and 19c. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows high privileged attacker having DBA privilege with network access via Oracle Net to compromise Oracle LogMiner. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data or all Oracle LogMiner accessible data as well as unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle LogMiner accessible data and unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of Oracle LogMiner. (CVE-2021-2332)

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