Oracle Workspace Manager SQL Injection Flaw


The Workspace Manager in Oracle 10g release 1 and 2 and Oracle 9i is
vulnerable to SQL injection.


Vulnerable Systems:
* Oracle version 9i
* Oracle version 10g release 1 and 2

The Workspace Manager, owned by SYS, contains a package called LT. This
package is owned and defined by the SYS user and can be executed by
PUBLIC. LT contains a procedure called FINDRICSET which calls the
FINDRICSET package in the LTRIC package. This is vulnerable to SQL
injection and can be abused by an attacker to gain SYS privileges.

Vendor Status:
