Buffer Overflow in Resource Manager of Oracle Database - Plan name parameter

August 27, 2009

Risk Level:

Affected versions:
Oracle Database Server version 9iR1 and 9iR2

Remote exploitable:
Yes (Authentication to Database Server is needed)

This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Esteban Martínez Fayó of Application Security Inc.

The plan name parameter used in ALTER SYSTEM SET RESOURCE_MANAGER_PLAN statement and in SYS.DBMS_RESOURCE_MANAGER.SWITCH_PLAN procedure is vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks. When passing an overly long plan name string a buffer can be overflowed.

To exploit this vulnerability it is required to have ALTER SYSTEM privilege. Exploitation of this vulnerability allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. It can also be exploited to cause DoS (Denial of service) killing the Oracle server process.

Vendor Status:
Vendor was contacted and a patch was released.

Restrict ALTER SYSTEM privilege.

Apply Oracle Critical Patch Update July 2009 available at Oracle Metalink.
