Oracle e-biz suite needs patching
Get to it, sharpish
Users of Oracle e-business suite applications must patch systems following the discovery of multiple vulnerabilities. Unpatched Oracle E-Business Suite 11i and Oracle Applications 11.0 packages are subject to Multiple SQL injection flaws that could be used to manipulate database entries, Oracle warns.
In the hands of knowledgeable crackers, these vulnerabilities could be remotely exploited simply by using a browser and sending a specially-crafted URL to the web server. Oracle E-Business Suite 11i, 11.5.1 up to 11.5.8 are affected. Users of 11.5.9 and above are safe. All versions of Oracle Applications 11.0 are vulnerable.
There's no interim workaround, so users are strongly advised to apply Oracle's patch. The "critical" flaws were discovered by researchers at security tools firm Integrigy, which specialises in developing intrusion prevention software for Oracle applications. Oracle shops with Internet-facing application servers are particularly at risk, it says.
