-- CVSS:
10, (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

-- Affected Vendors:
Oracle

-- Affected Products:
Oracle Secure Backup

-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary commands
on vulnerable installations of Oracle Secure Backup. Authentication is
required to exploit this vulnerability but may be bypassed.

The specific flaw exists in the handling of the 'selector[0]' variable
to the script index.php used in the administration server running on
port 443. Due to improper filtering of user data a specially crafted
request could lead to arbitrary commands being executed under the
credentials of the service.

-- Vendor Response:
Oracle has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
