Oracle Critical Patch Update April 2008 is out

Few minutes ago Oracle was releasing the latest Oracle CPU for April 2008 fixing 41 new vulnerabilities (15 in the database). 1 of the database vulnerabilities DB08 can be exploited remotely. APEX contains a SQL Injection vulnerability APEX01 and 1 remote exploitable vulnerability APEX02.

This time Oracle secalert forgot to inform the researchers (usual suspects: Cesar, Esteban, Stephen, Joxean… plus a few others) so we a not aware what vulnerabilities were fixed. Oracle normally informs the researchers in advance what vulnerabilities will be fixed in the upcoming CPU. The most critical issue (CVSS rating 6.6) is an issue in the Oracle Enterprise Manager. DB02-DB07 are SQL Injection vulnerabilities (5.5 is the typical CVSS value for that issue).

Oracle probably fixed the following of our vulnerabilities (we reported bugs in these packages):
* SQL Injection in SDO_GEOM (Tracking ID: 10051851)
* SQL Injection in SDO_UTIL (Tracking ID: 10051595)
* SQL Injection in SDO_IDX (Tracking ID: 10051649)

We will post more information soon…
