SQL Injection in ALTER_MANUALLOG_CHANGE_SOURCE procedure
AppSecInc Team SHATTER Security Advisory
April 18, 2005
Affected versions: Oracle Database Server version 10g
Risk level: High
Credits: This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Esteban
Martínez Fayó of Argeniss for Application Security Inc.
The CHANGE_SOURCE_NAME parameter of the standard procedure
SYS.DBMS_CDC_IPUBLISH.ALTER_MANUALLOG_CHANGE_SOURCE is vulnerable to SQL
injection. This package executes with privileges of the SYS user; by
default, PUBLIC has EXECUTE privilege.
Any low privileged database user can execute functions with DBA
privileges. Users with privilges to create or modify a function can
inject a user-defined function in the vulnerable procedure and thus
execute SQL statements with DBA privileges.
Revoke Execute privilege on the DBMS_CDC_IPUBLISH package
Vendor was contacted and a patch was released.
