The Computer Incident Advisory Delegation (CIAD) has just issued a Severity-One virus alert for a security vulnerability for Oracle Databases on Linux and UNIX platforms. This virus effects Oracle RDBMS Releases 8.1.0 through 220.127.116.11 and may result in a complete loss of service. This virus may be serious and requires IMMEDIATE attention to neutralize the threat.
Problem: The virus exploits a vulnerability in a Windows Oracle SQL*Net or Oracle*Net client, allowing an unauthorized Oracle user to gain root privileges on the UNIX Oracle database server. The virus then places a malicious Trojan executable on the server.
