January 29, 2009
Oracle Database Server version 9iR2
Yes (Authentication to Database Server is needed)
This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Esteban Martínez Fayó of Application Security Inc.
Oracle Database Server provides the SYS.OLAPIMPL_T package. This package contains the procedure ODCITABLESTART which is
vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks.
By default SYS.OLAPIMPL_T has EXECUTE permission to PUBLIC so any Oracle database user can exploit this vulnerability.
Exploitation of this vulnerability allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. It can also be exploited to cause DoS
(Denial of service) killing the Oracle server process.
Vendor was contacted and a patch was released.
Restrict access to the SYS.OLAPIMPL_T package.
