Oracle Secure Backup Administration Server login.php uname Parameter Arbitrary Command Injection

critical Nessus Plugin ID 55668
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.


The remote web server contains a PHP script that allows execution of arbitrary commands.


The version of Oracle Secure Backup Administration Server running on the remote host fails to adequately sanitize user-supplied input to the 'uname' parameter of 'login.php'. The system performs some sanitization which limits exploitation of this issue, but code execution is still possible.

A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this to execute code on the remote host with the privileges of the web server user.

By default the server runs with SYSTEM privileges under Windows.
