Oracle 9iAS SOAP configuration file retrieval

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to retrieve Oracle9iAS SOAP configuration file

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

In a default installation of Oracle 9iAS v.1.0.2.2.1, it is possible to
access some configuration files. These file includes detailed
information on how the product was installed in the server
including where the SOAP provider and service manager are located
as well as administrative URLs to access them. They might also
contain sensitive information (usernames and passwords for database
access).

Solution:
Modify the file permissions so that the web server process
cannot retrieve it. Note however that if the XSQLServlet is present
it might bypass filesystem restrictions.
