Oracle XSQL Stylesheet Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tests for Oracle XSQL Stylesheet Vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The Oracle XSQL Servlet permits arbitrary Java code to be executed by a possible hacker by supplying the URL of a malicious XSLT stylesheet when making a request to an XSQL page.

Solution:

Until Oracle changes the default behavior for the XSQL servlet to dispermit client supplied stylesheets, you can workaround this problem as follows. Add permit-client-style='no' on the document element of every xsql page on your server.
This plug-in tests for this vulnerability using a sample page, airport.xsql, which is supplied with the Oracle XSQL servlet. Sample code should always be removed from production servers.
