January 12, 2010

-- CVE ID:
CVE-2010-0072

-- Affected Vendors:
Oracle

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of Oracle Secure Backup. Authentication is not

of bounds checking on the reverse lookup of connections to the port a
stack overflow can occur leading to a complete compromise of the
affected system under the credentials of the SYSTEM account.
