Application Security, Inc.’s TeamSHATTER Discovers Ten Database-Related Vulnerabilities In January 2013 Oracle Critical Patch Update

Application Security, Inc. (AppSecInc), the leading provider of database security solutions for the enterprise, today announced that TeamSHATTER researchers, Esteban Martinez Fayo, Martin Rakhmanov and Qinglin Jiang, have been credited by Oracle for discovering and reporting the single security issue fixed in the Oracle Database and nine out of 14 security issues fixed in Oracle Enterprise Manager in the January 2013 Oracle Critical Patch Update (CPU). TeamSHATTER researchers have been credited for reporting vulnerabilities in 30 of the 33 Oracle CPUs since the program’s inception in 2005.

The January 2013 CPU contains a total of 86 security vulnerability fixes across multiple Oracle products; 45 of the fixes in this CPU are for vulnerabilities that are remotely exploitable without authentication. The CPU contains one database fix and 14 issues fixed in Oracle Enterprise Manager. The database issue and nine of the Oracle Enterprise Manager fixes are credited to TeamSHATTER.

The database vulnerability that was fixed is in the Spatial Component of the Oracle database. It allows for a full server takeover and should be patched immediately. If it is not needed, removing the Spatial Component is a potential workaround. This vulnerability has a CVSS score of 9.0.

The Oracle Enterprise Manager vulnerabilities include flaws that allow an attacker to affect the confidentiality and integrity of the database. The CVSS scores range from 4.3 – 7.5. An analysis and recommended call-to-action for the database vulnerability and the Oracle Enterprise Manager vulnerabilities is available here: http://www.teamshatter.com/

“Oracle is making a concerted effort to fix security vulnerabilities across the product line. The one database-specific fix has a CVSS score of 9.0, making it very high-risk, and customers need to deploy patches ASAP,” states Esteban Martinez Fayo, researcher with TeamSHATTER. “And, even though the fixes in Oracle Enterprise Manager are not as high of a risk (CVSS scores range from 4.3 – 7.5), 14 fixes is a high number that should be deployed so organizations are not left open to attack.”

This Critical Patch Update also contains 18 new security fixes for Oracle MySQL. Two of these vulnerabilities allow for a complete takeover of the database and the hosting server, and the other two vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password. It is extremely critical to apply these patches to any MySQL installation.

The TeamSHATTER vulnerability knowledgebase is the largest and most up-to-date offering of its kind. By identifying and remediating critical database vulnerabilities, TeamSHATTER helps to ensure that AppSecInc customer data is safe from internal and external threats.

AppSecInc supports every Oracle CPU by updating its market-leading solutions, AppDetectivePro for auditors and IT advisors and DbProtect for the enterprise with the appropriate scanning checks and monitoring filters through its monthly ASAP Update™ (Application Security Automatic Protection) process. DbProtect updates will include monitoring filters for the new security vulnerabilities, enabling customers to protect sensitive information during the deployment of new patches across their database infrastructure.

As cloud adoption continues to transform business, today's global enterprises are challenged with managing a growing amount of information living outside of the data center. The rapid adoption of IoT and increasingly mobile workforce are exacerbating the problem. Ensuring secure data sharing and efficient backup poses capacity and bandwidth considerations as well as policy and regulatory compliance issues.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
