Oracle CPU April 2008 – Update

Few hours ago Bruce Lowenthal sent me an email that Oracle forgot to inform me what was fixed. Hey how can you forget me. I am reporting bugs since several years… 😉 6 of my vulnerabilities are now history (if you apply the April patches or a new patchset like of the vulnerabilities are the affecting Oracle Spatial. The packages SDO_UTIL [DB05], SDO_GEOM [DB06]  and SDO_IDX [DB07] are vulnerable against SQL Injection. SDO_IDX is also vulnerable in Oracle 11g.

1 vulnerability is a hardcoded default password OUTLN [DB13] for the user OUTLN. In some special cases the Oracle database is resetting the password of the user OUTLN to OUTLN and grants DBA privileges to this user.

The CPU is also fixing 2 PL/SQL injection vulnerabilities from Paul Wright (see Paul’s blog entry). At the moment there is no additional information about vulnerabilities available.

This CPU provides also fixes the the Inline-View and Create-View problem.
