Vulnerability Note VU#999268
Oracle Client Tools buffer overflow vulnerability
A buffer overflow in an unspecified Oracle Client utility may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial-of-service condition.
According to Oracle:
One vulnerability (DBC02) is in a utility that can be forced to terminate if given long arguments, potentially allowing code of an attacker's choice to be executed. However, this utility is not installed with setuid (elevated) privileges, so the risk that it can be effectively exploited is very low.
An attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial-of-service condition.
