Oracle fixes WebLogic bug; 11g flaw exposed

Share this article:
Oracle on Thursday released a fix for a zero-day vulnerability in its WebLogic Node Manager. The publicly released bug can allow an attacker to fully compromise a targeted server on Windows, according to an Oracle blog post. The patch does not appear to be related to researcher David Litchfield's talk this week at the Black Hat conference in Washington, D.C., where he revealed how zero-day vulnerabilities in the Oracle 11g database could be used to bypass security and take complete control of the popular software. — DK
