|Who is Vulnerable?|
|Vulnerability Description||A format string vulnerability exists in Oracle Application Server. The flaw is due to improper handling of user data when logging the events. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending specially crafted request to the target system. In an attack case where code injection is not successful, the affected process will terminate abnormally. In a more sophisticated attack where code injection is successful, the behaviour of the target is entirely dependent on the intended function of the injected code. The code in such a case would execute within the security context of the affected process with System level privileges.|
This protection will detect and block attempts to exploit this vulnerability.
