    David Litchfield of NGSSoftware has discovered multiple high risk
    vulnerabilities in Oracle's Database Server. Versions affected include

    Oracle Database 10g Release 1 Version 10.1.0.2, 10.1.0.3, 10.1.0.3.1 and
    10.1.0.4
    Oracle9i Database Server Release 2, versions 9.2.0.5 and 9.2.0.6
    Oracle9i Database Server Release 1, versions 9.0.1.4, 9.0.1.5 and 9.0.4
    Oracle8i Database Server Release 3, version 8.1.7.4

    Oracle has released a patch that addresses these issues. The announcement of
    this patch can be found here:

    Patches can be downloaded from the Metalink website -

    NGSSoftware are going to withhold details about these flaws for three
    months. Full details will be published on the Tuesday, 12th of July 2005.
    This three month window will allow Oracle database administrators the time
    needed to test and apply the patch set before the details are released to
    the general public. This reflects NGSSoftware's new approach to responsible
    disclosure.

    NGSSQuirreL for Oracle, NGSSoftware's advanced vulnerability assessment
    scanner and security manager for Oracle, has been updated to check for and
    positively identify these flaws in Oracle database servers on the network.
