Apache Axis is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code within the context of the user running the affected application. Apache Axis 1.4 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
- Apache Axis 1.4
- Oracle Hospitality Guest Access 4.2.0
- Oracle Hospitality Guest Access 4.2.1
- Oracle Instantis EnterpriseTrack 17.1
- Oracle Instantis EnterpriseTrack 17.2
- Oracle Instantis EnterpriseTrack 17.3
- Oracle Policy Automation Connector for Siebel 10.4.6
Run all software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights.
To reduce the impact of latent vulnerabilities, run the application with the minimal amount of privileges required for functionality.
Deploy network intrusion detection systems to monitor network traffic for malicious activity.
Deploy NIDS to monitor network traffic for signs of anomalous or suspicious activity including unexplained incoming and outgoing traffic. This may indicate exploit attempts or activity that results from successful exploits.
Do not follow links provided by unknown or untrusted sources.
To reduce the likelihood of attacks, never visit sites of questionable integrity or follow links provided by unfamiliar or untrusted sources.
Implement multiple redundant layers of security.
Various memory-protection schemes (such as nonexecutable and randomly mapped memory segments) may hinder an attacker's ability to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code.
Currently, we are not aware of any vendor-supplied patches. If you feel we are in error or are aware of more recent information, please mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
