DESCRIPTION: Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in various Oracle products. Some of these vulnerabilities have unknown impacts while others can be exploited to gain access to sensitive information, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks, and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

Details are available for the following vulnerabilities:

1) A boundary error in the ONS (Oracle Notification Service) can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted packet sent to the service (default port 6200/TCP).

2) Certain input processed by the Oracle XML DB is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

3) Certain input processed by the DBMS_AQ_INV package is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitary SQL code

4) An input validation error in EmChartBean can be exploited to access files outside of the web root via directory traversal attacks.

Some vulnerabilities reported in various packages also affect certain Oracle products. For more information: SA22130 SA21709 SA22130

SOLUTION: Apply patches (see the vendor's advisory).
