*Oracle Database Multiple SQL Injection vulnerabilities in LTADM*
November 12, 2008
Oracle Database Server versions 9iR2, 10gR1, 10gR2 and 11gR1
Yes (Authentication required)
This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Esteban Mart=C3=ADnez
Fay=C3=B3 of Application Security Inc.
Oracle Database provides the "LTADM" PL/SQL package that is part of
the Oracle Workspace Manager component. This package has instances of
SQL Injection in COMPRESSSTATE and GOTOTS procedures. Dependening on
what Oracle Workspace Manager release is installed, this PL/SQL
package is owned by SYS (on older releses) or by WMSYS (on newer
releases). A malicious user can call the vulnerable procedures of this
package with specially crafted parameters and execute SQL statements
with the elevated privileges of the package owner, depending on the
system configuration it can be SYS or WMSYS.
Any Oracle database user with EXECUTE privilege on the package
[WM]SYS.LTADM can exploit this vulnerability. By default, WMSYS or
users granted IMP_FULL_DATABASE role have the required privilege.
Exploitation of this vulnerability allows an attacker to execute SQL
commands with SYS or WMSYS privileges.
Vendor was contacted and a patch was released.
Restrict access to the [WM]SYS.LTADM package.
