Vulnerability Assessment Details
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in Oracle Application Server 9i Webcache < 220.127.116.11
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
According to its banner, the version of Oracle Application Server 9i
Webcache installed on the remote host suffers from several flaws:
- Arbitrary File Corruption Vulnerability
A possible hacker may be able to corrupt arbitrary files on the
remote host by passing the filenames through the
'cache_dump_file' parameter of the 'webcacheadmin' script.
- Multiple Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities
The 'webcacheadmin' script does not properly sanitize the
'cache_dump_file' and 'PartialPageErrorPage' parameters
before using them in dynamically generated web pages. An
attacker may be able to exploit these flaws to conduct
cross-site scripting attacks against the affected web site.
Reportedly, a possible hacker can exploit both types of vulnerabilities to
corrupt an OAS installation.
