Onapsis Issues 12 Advisories Affecting Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle JD Edwards

High-profile cyber-risks reveal unauthorized users could perform Cross Site Scripting, Denial of Service, Password Disclosure and User Creation attacks

Boston, MA – July 28, 2016 – Onapsis, the global experts in business-critical application security, today released new security advisories detailing vulnerabilities in Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle JD Edwards. Included in the advisories are three “critical risk” vulnerabilities for Oracle JD Edwards that could be used to achieve administrative rights and potentially compromise the entire JDE landscape. These vulnerabilities pose a potential risk to Oracle JD Edwards customers who use JD Edwards 9.1 EnterpriseOne Server software to run their business.

“In addition to the urgent ‘critical risk’ vulnerabilities, these advisories are the first of dozens to be released for Cross Site Scripting vulnerabilities that we’ve reported to Oracle. When an attacker exploits this type of vulnerability, code is executed on the end users machine. If an organization uses more of the suite’s applications and has larger deployments, there are a greater number of users who have access to the system – therefore creating greater risk for the organization. Remediation for this type of attack is extremely critical to prioritize as it poses a higher risk to the organization compared to other types of vulnerabilities,” said Matias Mevied, Senior Oracle Security Researcher, Onapsis.

As a core business application, Oracle E-Business Suite manages critical information such as Financial, Human Resources and Customer data, Project Portfolio Management, Procurement, and Supply Chain Management. Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is an integrated applications suite of comprehensive enterprise resource planning software that combines business value, standards-based technology, and deep industry experience into a business solution with a low total cost of ownership.

Vulnerabilities affecting Oracle E-Business Suite include:

High Risk

  • Oracle E-Business Suite Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
    • By exploiting this vulnerability, a remote attacker could steal sensitive business information by targeting other users connected to the system.

Vulnerabilities affecting Oracle JD Edwards:

Critical Risk

  • JD Edwards JDENet Password Disclosure
    • By exploiting this vulnerability, an unauthenticated attacker could achieve administrative rights and would be able to potentially compromise all information stored and processed on the JDE System.
  • JD Edwards Server Manager Password Disclosure
    • By exploiting this vulnerability, an unauthenticated attacker could retrieve the administration user and passwords from the Server Manager. This could lead to a potential compromise of the entire JDE landscape hence all of its information and processes.
  • JD Edwards Server Manager Create users
    • By exploiting this vulnerability, an unauthenticated attacker could create users in the Server Manager, ultimately compromising the entire JDE landscape and all of its information and processes.

The advisories are released by the Onapsis Research Labs, a team of security experts who combine in-depth knowledge and experience to deliver technical analysis with business-context, and provide sound security guidance to the market. The team has reported more than 300 SAP and Oracle vulnerabilities, has released over 150 advisories to date and has worked with DHS on the release of the first ever US-CERT Alert for SAP Business Applications. In Oracle’s July Critical Patch Update, 15 of the vulnerabilities patched were disclosed by the Onapsis Research Labs.

Each advisory details the business-context relevance of an identified vulnerability, including impact on a business, a description of the affected components, and steps to resolution such as patch download links and recommended security fixes.
