Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Service Information Disclosure (January 2015 CPU) (BEAST)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 81003


The remote web server is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The version of Oracle HTTP Server installed on the remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability, known as BEAST, in the SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 protocols due to a flaw in the way the initialization vector (IV) is selected when operating in cipher-block chaining (CBC) modes. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to obtain plaintext HTTP header data, by using a blockwise chosen-boundary attack (BCBA) on an HTTPS session, in conjunction with JavaScript code that uses the HTML5 WebSocket API, the Java URLConnection API, or the Silverlight WebClient API.


Apply the appropriate patch according to the January 2015 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
