Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher Multiple Vulnerabilities (October 2018 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 120948

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher running on the remote host is 11.1.1.7.x prior to 11.1.1.7.181016, 11.1.1.9.x prior to 11.1.1.9.181016, 12.2.1.3.x prior to 12.2.1.3.181016, or 12.2.1.4.x prior to 12.2.1.4.181016. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in the October 2018 Critical Patch Update advisory:

- A deserialization vulnerability exists in Apache Log4j 2.x before 2.8.2. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted binary, to execute arbitrary code on the target host (CVE-2017-5645).

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Analytics Server, Oracle BI Publisher.Supported version affected is 12.2.1.3.0 An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via HTTP, to disclose potentially sensitive information. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker and while the vulnerability is in Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition, attacks may significantly impact additional products (CVE-2018-3204).

- A deserialization vulnerability exists in Apache Batik 1.x before 1.10 due to subclass of `AbstractDocument`.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via deserializing subclass of `AbstractDocument`, to execute arbitrary code on the target host (CVE-2018-8013).

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Apply the appropriate patch according to the October 2018 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
