Oracle plugs critical database, application holes

Robert Westervelt, News Editor of SearchSecurity.com discusses how, 

Oracle Corp. plugged holes in its products as part of its quarterly Critical Patch Update, releasing patches for more than a dozen critical vulnerabilities that could be exploited remotely to gain access to sensitive data.

The release contains some serious database flaws, according to Amichai Shulman, CTO of Foster City, Calif.-based Imperva Inc. Some of the most critical vulnerabilities require no special privileges in the database to exploit, Shulman said.

"This means that you don't have any workarounds for those vulnerabilities," he said. "Some of them allow a complete takeover of the database without requiring any authentication through the network."

In the article, Westervelt also discusses Oracle’s updated scoring system indicating that:

The release is also the first Oracle update that adopts version 2.0 of the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS). The new scoring system is more representative of real world vulnerabilities, explained Eric Maurice a security manager with Oracle's Global Technology Business Unit, in the Oracle Security blog.
