Web Site Consolidates Oracle Security Alerts

Here is a web site that offers explanations and possible fixes to Oracle security alerts:

This handy site has rolled Oracle security Alerts into one easy page.  The areas covered on this site include:

Pen Test - Misconfigurations

Pen Test - Denial of Services

Pen Test - Vulnerabilities

Pen Test - Password Attacks

Audit - Identification/Password Contraol

Audit - Access Control

Audit - Application Integrity

Audit - OS Integrity

By choosing one of the above categories, an individual gets a comprehensive list of error messages.  Once one chooses the error message he/she is receiving, the site, Application Security, Inc, provides the name of the error, the security risk level, a summary of the error, an overview of the security alert including area of vulnerability, Oracle versions affected, and fix information regarding the alert.

For example, when clicking on CREATE_MVIEW_REPGROUP overflow (Verify version) under the Pen Test - Vunerabilities tab, a segment of the overview that is displayed is as follows:

This vulnerability can be exploited by members of the roles EXECUTE_CATALOG_ROLE and SYSDBA or by users granted execute permissions on these vulnerable packages.

This security issue allows a non-privileged user to elevate his or her privileges to DBA. It can also be exploited to crash the database causing a DOS (Denial of Service) condition for the Oracle database.
