Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory - July 2008


Description

A Critical Patch Update is a collection of patches for multiple security vulnerabilities. It also includes non-security fixes that are required (because of interdependencies) by those security patches. Critical Patch Updates are cumulative, except as noted below, but each advisory describes only the security fixes added since the previous Critical Patch Update. Thus, prior Critical Patch Update Advisories should be reviewed for information regarding earlier accumulated security fixes. Please refer to

Critical Patch Updates and Security Alerts for information about Oracle Security Advisories.

Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply fixes as soon as possible. This Critical Patch Update contains 45 new security fixes across all products.

Patch Availability Table and Risk Matrices

The Oracle Database, Oracle Application Server, Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control, Oracle E-Business Suite Applications (Release 12 only), JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, JD Edwards OneWorld Tools, PeopleSoft Enterprise Portal Applications, PeopleSoft Enterprise PeopleTools and Siebel Enterprise patches in the Updates are cumulative; patches for any product included in a Critical Patch Update will include all fixes for that product from the previous Critical Patch Updates.

Oracle E-Business Suite Applications Release 11i patches are not cumulative, so Oracle E-Business Suite Applications customers should refer to previous Critical Patch Updates to identify previous security fixes they want to apply. Oracle Collaboration Suite patches were cumulative up to and including the fixes provided in the July 2007 Critical Patch Update. From the July 2007 Critical Patch Update on, Oracle Collaboration Suite security fixes are delivered using the one-off patch infrastructure normally used by Oracle to deliver single bug fixes to customers. Patches for BEA products are not cumulative (unless otherwise stated), so BEA customers should refer to previous Security Advisories to identify previous security fixes they want to apply.

For each Oracle product being administered, please consult the documentation for patch availability information and installation instructions referenced from the following table. For an overview of the Oracle product documentation related to this Critical Patch Update, please refer to the Oracle Critical Patch Update July 2008 Documentation Map, MetaLink Note 605152.1.

Risk Matrix Content

Risk matrices list only security vulnerabilities that are newly fixed by the patches associated with this advisory. Risk matrices for previous security fixes can be found in previous Critical Patch Update advisories.

Several vulnerabilities addressed in this Critical Patch Update affect multiple products. The same vulnerability appears with the same Vuln # in all risk matrices. Italics indicate vulnerabilities in code included from other product areas.

Security vulnerabilities are scored using CVSS version 2.0 (see Oracle CVSS Scoring). Oracle conducts an analysis of each security vulnerability addressed by a Critical Patch Update (CPU). Oracle does not disclose information about the security analysis, but the resulting Risk Matrix and associated documentation provide information about the type of vulnerability, the conditions required to exploit it, and the potential result of a successful exploit. Oracle provides this information, in part, so that customers may conduct their own risk analysis based on the particulars of their product usage. As a matter of policy, Oracle does not disclose detailed information about an exploit condition or results that can be used to conduct a successful exploit. Oracle will not provide additional information about the specifics of vulnerabilities beyond what is provided in the CPU or Security Alert notification, the Patch Availability Matrix, the readme files, and FAQs. Oracle does not provide advance notification on CPUs or Security Alerts to individual customers. Finally, Oracle does not distribute exploit code or “proof-of-concept” code for product vulnerabilities.

Starting in the July, 2008 Critical Patch Update, Oracle will use Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures ( CVE) identifiers rather than Oracle proprietary identifiers for identifying vulnerabilities (Vuln#) in Risk Matrices(see FAQ). Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures maintains a dictionary of CVE Identifiers for publicly known security vulnerabilities.

Workarounds


Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply fixes as soon as possible. Until you apply the CPU fixes, it may be possible to reduce the risk of successful attack by restricting network protocols required by an attack. For attacks that require certain privileges or access to certain packages, removing the privileges or the ability to access the packages from unprivileged users may help reduce the risk of successful attack. Both approaches may break application functionality, so Oracle strongly recommends that customers test changes on non-production systems. Neither approach should be considered a long-term solution as neither corrects the underlying problem.

Unsupported Products and De-Supported Versions

Unsupported products, releases and versions are not tested for the presence of vulnerabilities addressed by this Critical Patch Update. However, it is likely that earlier patch sets of affected releases are also affected by these vulnerabilities.

Critical Patch Update patches are not provided for product versions that are no longer covered under the Premier Support or Extended Support phases of the Lifetime Support Policy. We recommend that customers upgrade to the latest supported version of Oracle products in order to obtain patches.

Extended Support Phase: Critical Patch Update patches are available to customers who have purchased Extended Support under the Lifetime Support Policy. Customers must have a valid Extended Support service contract to be able to download Critical Patch Update patches for products in the Extended Support Phase. Critical Patch Update patches may not be downloaded to update products supported with Sustaining Support, or to update any unsupported products.

Supported Database, Fusion Middleware and Collaboration Suite products are patched in accordance with the Software Error Correction Support Policy explained in MetaLink Note 209768.1. Please review the Technical Support Policies for further guidelines regarding support policies and phases of support.

On Request Model for Oracle Database and Oracle Application Server

Oracle will proactively create patches only for platform/version combinations that, based on historical data, customers are likely to download for the next Critical Patch Update. We create patches for historically inactive platform/version combinations of the Oracle Database and Oracle Application Server only if requested by customers. Fixes for the vulnerabilities will continue to be included in future releases and patch sets.

Additional details regarding the products, versions and platforms that will be supported for the next Critical Patch Update and the process for requesting On Request patches are available in Section 4.10 (Planned Patches for Next CPU release) of the Critical Patch Update July 2008 Availability Information for Oracle Database and Fusion Middleware Products ( MetaLink Note 579278.1).

Oracle Database Executive Summary

This Critical Patch Update contains a total of 14 new security fixes for Oracle Database products, divided as follows:

  • 11 new security fixes for the Oracle Database. None of these database vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e. none may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password. No new security fixes are applicable to Oracle Database client-only installations, i.e. installations that do not have the Oracle Database installed.
  • 3 new security fixes for the Times Ten In-Memory Database. All of these vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e. they may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password.
  • No new security fixes for the following products:
    • Oracle Secure Enterprise Search, which is a separate product that is not installed with the Oracle Database.
    • Oracle Application Express (formerly called HTML DB).
    • Oracle Audit Vault, which is a separate product that is not installed with the Oracle Database.
    • Oracle HTTP Server, which is installed by default with Oracle Database 9i Release 2. For Oracle Database versions 10g and higher, Oracle HTTP Server is on the Companion CD, is separately installable, and is not installed with the Database. Oracle recommends that customers apply this Critical Patch Update to Oracle HTTP Server installations that are affected by vulnerabilities fixed in prior Critical Patch Updates if the prior patches have not been applied. If Oracle HTTP Server has not been installed, this software will not be present and the Oracle HTTP Server patches are not required.
