Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory - October 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 36 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 October 2008 Documentation Map, MetaLink Note 738895.1.

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 for an explanation of how Oracle applies CVSS 2.0). 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 uses 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 the Critical Patch Update October 2008 Availability Information for Oracle Database and Fusion Middleware Products ( MetaLink Note 735216.1).

Oracle Database Client-only Installations

No new vulnerabilities affect Oracle Database client-only installations (installations that do not have the Oracle Database installed).


Oracle Secure Enterprise Search

Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g is a standalone product that enables searching across a corporation's enterprise information assets. Unless you installed the Oracle Secure Enterprise Search product, it will not be present on your system and no further action is required.

The security vulnerabilities listed in the previous Critical Patch Advisories are fixed in Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g, version 10.1.8.3. Customers on previous versions of Secure Enterprise Search should upgrade to version 10.1.8.3 or later. Instructions on upgrading Oracle Secure Enterprise Search can be found in the Online Documentation. This, and the software to install, is referenced from the Oracle Technology Network Secure Enterprise Search page.

Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g includes Oracle Database 10g version 10.1.0.5, and since vulnerabilities affecting this Database version may affect Oracle Secure Enterprise Search, Oracle recommends that customers apply the October 2008 Critical Patch Update to the embedded Database.

Oracle Audit Vault

Oracle Audit Vault 10g is a standalone product that collects and analyzes audit data from multiple systems. Unless you installed the Oracle Audit Vault product, it will not be present on your system and no further action is required.

Oracle Audit Vault 10g includes Oracle Database 10g version 10.2.0.3, and since vulnerabilities affecting this Database version may affect Oracle Audit Vault, Oracle recommends that customers apply the October 2008 Critical Patch Update to the embedded database. Please review the Critical Patch Update October 2008 Availability Information for Oracle Database and Fusion Middleware Products, MetaLink Note 735216.1 before applying the October 2008 Critical Patch Update to the embedded Database.

Overview of Oracle Application Express

Oracle Application Express is a rapid web application development tool for the Oracle Database. In Oracle Database releases up to and including 10g Release 2, Oracle Application Express was separately installed from a Companion CD supplied with the Oracle Database CD set or from a package downloaded from an Oracle web site. If you have not installed Oracle Application Express from the companion CD, no further action is required.

From Oracle Database 11g onwards, Oracle Application Express is included in the default installation of the Oracle Database. Hence, customers with Oracle Database 11g installation must install Oracle Application Express 3.1.2, or later, to apply the security fixes.

To check for the presence of Application Express on a system, run the following command from a SQL prompt as SYS:
select username from dba_users where username in ('FLOWS_010500','FLOWS_010600','FLOWS_020000','FLOWS_020200','FLOWS_030000','FLOWS_030100');

If the result is 'no rows selected' then no version of the product is installed and no further action is required. Other output indicates Oracle Application Express is installed, even if it is not actively in use.

Upgrading Oracle Application Express

There is one Oracle Application Express security vulnerability listed in the risk matrix above. Security vulnerabilities in Oracle Application Express are fixed in version 3.1.2 and later. Instructions on upgrading and the software to install the latest version of Oracle Application Express can be found on:
http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/application_express/download.html.
