-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA256 =========================================================================== AUSCERT Security Bulletin ASB-2017.0123 Security Advisory: Oracle Support Tools 20 July 2017 =========================================================================== AusCERT Security Bulletin Summary --------------------------------- Product: Oracle Explorer Operating System: Solaris Impact/Access: Access Privileged Data -- Remote/Unauthenticated Resolution: Patch/Upgrade CVE Names: CVE-2017-3732 Member content until: Saturday, August 19 2017 OVERVIEW Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified in Oracle Support Tools products: - Oracle Explorer, versions prior to 8.16.  IMPACT The vendor has provided the following information regarding to the vulnerabilities. "This Critical Patch Update contains 1 new security fix for Oracle Support Tools. This vulnerability is remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., may be exploited over a network without requiring user credentials."  "CVE-2017-3732 5.9 AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N The supported version that is affected is 18.104.22.168.0. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via HTTPS to compromise Oracle API Gateway. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized access to critical data or complete access to all Oracle API Gateway accessible data."  MITIGATION Oracle states: "Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply CPU fixes as soon as possible. Until you apply the CPU fixes, it may be possible to reduce the risk of successful attack by blocking network protocols required by an attack. For attacks that require certain privileges or access to certain packages, removing the privileges or the ability to access the packages from users that do not need the privileges may help reduce the risk of successful attack. Both approaches may break application functionality, so Oracle strongly recommends that customers test changes on non-production systems. Neither approach should be considered a long-term solution as neither corrects the underlying problem."
