TeamSHATTER Security Advisory
Oracle Enterprise Manager vulnerable to Cross-site scripting (metricDetail$type page)
July 26, 2011
Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control versions 10.1.0.6, 10.2.0.5
Oracle Enterprise Manager control included in Oracle Database versions 10.1.0.5, 10.2.0.3, 10.2.0.4, 10.2.0.5, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168
This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Esteban Martinez Fayo of Application Security, Inc.
Cross-site scripting vulnerabilities occur when an attacker tricks a legitimate web application into sending malicious code, generally in the form of a script, to an unsuspecting end user. The attack usually involves crafting a hyperlink with malicious script code embedded within it. A valid user is likely to click this link since it points to a resource on a trusted domain. The link can be posted on a web page, or sent in an instant message, or email. Clicking on the link executes the attacker-injected code in the context of the trusted web application. Typically, the code steals session cookies, which can then be used to impersonate a valid user.
There are instances of XSS vulnerabilities in the Instance Management component of Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control. For example the 'commentinput' parameter of /em/console/database/monitoring/metricDetail$type web page 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 July 2011 CPU.
