I also could not locate a patch or even a reference to the bug id either.
There is a little bit of disparity between the Covert and the Oracle
advisories. Oracle currently claims they are in the process of backporting.
Having dealt with Oracle in the past on issues such as this, they have alot
of work backporting to all the different platforms and versions, so it
typically takes them quite sometime to patch this stuff.
From the Covert release:
Oracle has produced a patch under bug number 1489683 which is available for
From the Oracle release:
Oracle has fixed this vulnerability in Oracle9i. Oracle is in the process of
backporting the fix to supported Oracle8i database server and Release 8.1.7
and 8.1.6 ......
I will attempt to contact the security product manager over there and let
everyone know if I find anything out.

It may be premature to say there is a resolution to this problem or the
other reported problem ([COVERT-2001-03] Oracle 8i SQLNet Header
Vulnerability). I have searched the metalink site for several hours trying
to find a bug report that references either of these problems or the
patches, to no avail. I've also searched for the patch on Oracle's ftp
server ftp-oracle.oracle.com, also without success. There are at least 3
articles posted to the internal metalink networking forum from Oracle users
who haven't been able to locate the patches.
I have opened a "TAR" with Oracle to request the patches, but has anyone
been able to locate either of these patches or the corresponding bug reports
