TeamSHATTER Security Advisory

January 20, 2011

Risk Level:
Medium

Affected versions:
Oracle Database Server version 10gR2, 11gR1 and 11gR2

Remote exploitable:
No

Credits:
This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Martin Rakhmanov of Application Security Inc.

Details:
It is possible to execute arbitrary operating system commands as localsystem when certain maintenance tasks are 
executed.
For instance, when Database Configuration Assistant is invoked or Oracle Universal Installer is used to modify features.
These tools use a Windows service to execute various commands: the service itself relies on a named pipe to receive the
commands. The pipe handling is not secure enough resulting in the vulnerability.

Impact:
It is possible for a local user to execute code as localsystem.

Vendor Status:
Vendor was contacted and a patch was released.

Workaround:
There is no workaround for this vulnerability. This vulnerability affects Windows platforms only.

Fix:
Apply Oracle Critical Patch Update January 2011 available at Oracle Metalink.

CVE:
CVE-2010-4423
