The Oracle products and components listed above are affected by
multiple vulnerabilities. The impacts of these vulnerabilities
include remote execution of arbitrary code, information disclosure,
and denial of service.

I. Description

The Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory - October 2010 addresses
85 vulnerabilities in various Oracle products and components,
including 31 vulnerabilities in Sun products. The Advisory provides
information about affected components, access and authorization
required for successful exploitation, and the impact from the
vulnerabilities on data confidentiality, integrity, and

Oracle has associated CVE identifiers with the vulnerabilities
addressed in this Critical Patch Update. More detail about one of
the vulnerabilities is available in US-CERT Vulnerability Note

The Oracle Siebel Suite Executive Summary section of the Oracle
Advisory notes, "None of these vulnerabilities may be remotely
exploitable without authentication, i.e., none may be exploited
over a network without the need for a username and password." A
system with the Siebel Option Pack for IE ActiveX control installed
on it can be attacked remotely by an unauthenticated attacker by
enticing the user to access a specially crafted HTML file (most
likely a web site controlled by the attacker).

II. Impact

The impact of these vulnerabilities varies depending on the
product, component, and configuration of the system. Potential
consequences include the execution of arbitrary code or commands,
information disclosure, and denial of service. Vulnerable
components may be available to unauthenticated, remote attackers.
An attacker who compromises an Oracle database may be able to
access sensitive information.

III. Solution

Apply the appropriate patches or upgrade as specified in the Oracle
Critical Patch Update Advisory - October 2010. Note that this
document only lists newly corrected issues. Updates to patches for
previously known issues are not listed.
