Oracle Database Multiple SQL Injection vulnerabilities in LTADM

November 12, 2008

Risk Level: Medium

Affected versions: Oracle Database Server versions 9iR2, 10gR1, 10gR2 and 11gR1

Remote exploitable: Yes (Authentication required)

Credits: This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Esteban Martinez Fayo of Application Security Inc.

Details: 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.

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

Workaround: Restrict access to the [WM]SYS.LTADM package.

Fix: Apply Oracle Critical Patch Update October 2008 available at Oracle Metalink.

CVE: CVE-2008-3994
