Oracle 9iAS default error information disclosure

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to retrieve the phisical path of files through Oracle9iAS

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

It is possible to obtain the physical path of the remote server
web root.

Description :

Oracle 9iAS permits remote attackers to obtain the physical path of a file
under the server root via a request for a non-existent .JSP file. The default
error generated leaks the pathname in an error message.

Solution :

Ensure that virtual paths of URL is different from the actual directory
path. Also, do not use the directory in
'ApJServMount ' to store data or files.

Upgrading to Oracle 9iAS 1.1.2.0.0 will also fix this issue.
