Bugs: Response Splitting (XSS)
Vendor response: 23.01.2009
Date of Public Advisory: 22.02.2012
Author: Alexandr Polyakov
Oracle Application Server Containers has multiple HTTP Response Splitting vulnerabilities.
An attacker can use XSS vulnerability by sending a link on malicious script to an unaware user via e-mail, messaging or social networks. The end user browser has no way to know that the script should not be trusted, and will execute the script. The malicious script can get access to any cookies, session tokens, or other sensitive information retained by your browser and used with Oracle web applications. This script can even rewrite the contents of an HTML page. Thus, an attacker can gain access to user session and gain control over business-critical information which can be accessed by victim.
