-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA256 =========================================================================== AUSCERT Security Bulletin ASB-2019.0116 Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified in Oracle Health Sciences Applications 18 April 2019 =========================================================================== AusCERT Security Bulletin Summary --------------------------------- Product: Oracle Health Sciences Applications Operating System: Windows UNIX variants (UNIX, Linux, OSX) Impact/Access: Execute Arbitrary Code/Commands -- Remote/Unauthenticated Modify Arbitrary Files -- Existing Account Access Confidential Data -- Existing Account Resolution: Patch/Upgrade CVE Names: CVE-2019-2629 CVE-2016-1000031 Member content until: Saturday, May 18 2019 Reference: ESB-2018.0636 ESB-2018.0069 ESB-2018.1052 ESB-2019.0408 OVERVIEW Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified in: o Oracle Health Sciences Data Management Workbench, version 2.4.8 o Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index, versions 3.0, 4.0  IMPACT The vendor has provided the following information regarding the vulnerabilities: "This Critical Patch Update contains 2 new security fixes for Oracle Health Sciences Applications. 1 of these vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., may be exploited over a network without requiring user credentials."  "CVE-2016-1000031 9.8 AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H Easily exploitable vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via HTTP to compromise the affected system. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of the affected system. Affects: o Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index 3.0, 4.0 CVE-2019-2629 5.4 AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with network access via HTTP to compromise the affected system. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of the affected system's accessible data as well as unauthorized read access to a subset of the affected system's accessible data. Affects: o Oracle Health Sciences Data Management Workbench 2.4.8"  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."
