Oracle Spatial is vulnerable to SQL injection, possibly allowing a remote attacker to execute arbitrary SQL commands on a vulnerable Oracle installation.
Oracle Spatial fails to properly filter user-supplied input. This could allow a remote attacker to insert arbitrary SQL commands, which may be executed by the database.
Based on research into public information, we believe that this issue is Oracle vuln# DB12 in the Oracle CPU for April 2006. However, there is not sufficient information to authoritatively relate Oracle vulnerability information to information provided by other parties.
A remote attacker may be able to execute SQL queries on a server, possibly with elevated privileges. As a result, attackers may be able to view or modify the contents of an Oracle database.
This vulnerability was reported in the Oracle Critical Patch Update for April 2006. Information in this document came from Oracle and Alexander Kornbrust of Red-Database Security,
