Vulnerability Details

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on 
vulnerable installations of Oracle Audit Vault. Authentication is not required 
to exploit this vulnerability.

The flaw exists within the av component which listens by default on TCP port 
5700. When handling an action.execute request the process evaluates code 
provided as a parameter without proper validation. This allows for creation of 
arbitrary objects. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute 
arbitrary code under the context of the oracle user.

Vendor Response
Oracle has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be
