Cross-site scripting in Oracle Enterprise Manager (advReplicationAdmin)
TeamSHATTER Security Advisory
February 20, 2013
Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Control 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199
This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Esteban Martinez Fayo of
Application Security Inc.
Cross-site scripting vulnerabilities occur when an attacker tricks a
legitimate web application into sending malicious code, generally in the form
of a script, to an unsuspecting end user. The attack usually involves crafting
a hyperlink with malicious script code embedded within it. A valid user is
likely to click this link since it points to a resource on a trusted domain.
The link can be posted on a web page, or sent in an instant message, or email.
Clicking on the link executes the attacker-injected code in the context of the
trusted web application. Typically, the code steals session cookies, which can
then be used to impersonate a valid user.
There are instances of XSS vulnerabilities in the Distributed/Cross DB
Features of Oracle Enterprise Manager. For example web page
/em/console/database/dist/advRepl/advReplicationAdmin is vulnerable to this
kind of attacks.
Attackers might steal administrator's session cookies, thereby allowing the
attacker to impersonate the valid user.
Vendor was contacted and a patch was released.
There is no workaround for this vulnerability.
Apply January 2013 CPU.
