Integrigy Security Advisory
Multiple High Risk Vulnerabilities in Oracle E-Business Suite 11i
Oracle Critical Patch Update - July 2005
July 12, 2005
Oracle today will be releasing its third Critical Patch Update (July 2005).
The patches contained in the Critical Patch Update will correct numerous
security bugs in the Oracle Database, Oracle Application Server, and Oracle
A number of high risk SQL injection and parameter manipulation security
vulnerabilities in the Oracle E-Business Suite are corrected by the security
patches released today. Customers with Internet-facing implementations of
the Oracle E-Business Suite should consider applying these patches as soon
as possible. It is possible that an attacker with only a web browser and a
network connection (either internally or externally) to Oracle E-Business
Suite web application servers can execute malicious SQL statements in the
database as the APPS database account.
The Oracle E-Business Suite patches involved with this Critical Patch Update
are much more complex as compared to the previous CPUs and will require
additional functional testing in our opinion. In addition, the Oracle
E-Business Suite security patches are not cumulative, therefore, all the
patches specified in this CPU and previous CPUs must be applied.
Integrigy will be releasing more detailed guidance in the near future in
order to assist our clients in determining the relevance and priority of
patches for their Oracle E-Business Suite implementations. The Integrigy
analysis for this Critical Patch Update will be posted at
http://www.integrigy.com/analysis.htm when it is available.
