Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Multiple Vulnerabilities (January 2017 CPU)
High Nessus Plugin ID 96777
SynopsisAn enterprise management application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the Enterprise Manager Base Platform component :
- A flaw exists in the Bouncy Castle Java library due to improper validation of a point within the elliptic curve. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to obtain private keys by using a series of specially crafted elliptic curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) key exchanges, also known as an 'invalid curve attack.' (CVE-2015-7940)
- A flaw exists in Apache MyFaces Trinidad, specifically in the CoreResponseStateManager component, due to the ObjectInputStream and ObjectOutputStream strings being used directly without securely deserializing Java input.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a deserialization attack using a crafted serialized view state string, to have an unspecified impact that may include the execution of arbitrary code.
Note that the product was formerly known as Enterprise Manager Grid Control.
SolutionApply the appropriate patch according to the January 2017 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
