SQL Injection in Oracle Enterprise Manager (TARGET Parameter)
January 29, 2009
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control 10.2.0.4 and previous patchsets
Yes (Authentication is needed)
This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Esteban Martínez Fayó of Application Security Inc.
SQL Injection works by attempting to modify the parameters passed to an application to change the SQL statements that
are passed to a database. SQL injection can be used to insert additional SQL statements to be executed.
The "TARGET" parameter used in web page /em/console/reports/admin of Oracle Enterprise Manager web application is
vulnerable to SQL Injection attacks. It may be possible for a malicious user to execute a function with the elevated
privileges of the SYSMAN database user in the repository database. This user has the DBA role granted.
This vulnerability allow a Oracle Enterprise Manager user with VIEW (or more) privileges to execute a function call
with the elevated privileges of the SYSMAN database user.
Vendor was contacted and a patch was released.
There is no workaround for this issue.
