Disclosure Date


Oracle Database Server contains a flaw that may allow an attacker to carry out an SQL injection attack. The issue is due to the DBMS_METADATA_UTIL package not properly sanitizing user-supplied input to the LONG2VARCHAR, LONG2VCMAX, LONG2VCNT, or LONG2CLOB variables. This may allow an attacker to inject or manipulate SQL queries in the back-end database.
