The administration tools (i.e. ookillls, oostopams, etc) for Objectivity/DB do not require authentication for local or remote operation.
Objectivity/DB comes with several administration tools for database maintenance. By design, these tools do not require authentication. An attacker can emulate the functionality of the administration tools with a custom script as well.
An unauthenticated remote attacker can run commands on the database server. Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability of the data can be compromised by the attacker.
We are currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem.
Appropriate firewall rules should be implemented to restrict remote access to only trusted sources or blocked entirely and administration only done locally. TCP ports 6779 and 6780 should be filtered.
Thanks to Jeremy Brown for reporting this vulnerability.
