Checks for multiple remote directory traversal vulnerabilities in Oracle Database 8i/9i

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote database server is affected by directory traversal flaws.

Description :

According to its version number, the installation of Oracle on the
remote host is reportedly subject to multiple directory traversal
vulnerabilities that may permit a remote attacker to read, write, or

server. An authenticated user can craft SQL queries such that they
would be able to retrieve any file on the system and potentially
retrieve and/or modify files in the same drive as the affected
application.
