SQL Injection in CREATE_SCN_CHANGE_SET Procedure
The CHANGE_SET_NAME parameter of the standard procedure
SYS.DBMS_CDC_IPUBLISH.CREATE_SCN_CHANGE_SET is vulnerable to SQL
injection. This procedure executes with privileges of the SYS user; by
default, PUBLIC has EXECUTE privilege.
* Oracle Database Server version 10g
Any low privileged database user can execute functions with DBA
privileges. Users with privileges 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 DBMS_CDC_IPUBLISH package.
Vendor was contacted and a patch was released.
