Two Oracle E-Business Suite security vulnerabilities (CVE-2019-2638, CVE-2019-2633) fixed in April 2019 Oracle Critical Patch Update (CPU) have been recently publicized. These vulnerabilities allow an attacker to execute arbitrary SQL statements in the Oracle E-Business Suite data that can result in complete compromise of the environment including fraudulent transactions, changing of bank accounts, and circumvention of application security controls.

Oracle E-Business Suite Security
Top 10 Oracle E-Business Suite Security Risks Tuesday April 9 - 10:30 AM-11:30 AM - GH 4th FL Republic C
As with almost all previous Oracle E-Business Suite Critical Patch Updates (CPU), the July 2018 quarterly patch is significant and high-risk for PeopleSoft applications. Despite the publicity, marketing, or naming of specific vulnerabilities, this quarter is no different than previous quarters in terms of risk and prioritization within your organization.
For this quarter, there are 15 security vulnerabilities patches in PeopleSoft applications and PeopleTools --
Oracle has released an out-of-cycle security advisory (CVE-2017-10151) for a vulnerability affecting Oracle Identity Manager. This vulnerability has a CVSS 3.0 base score of 10 out of 10. Oracle Identity Manager is the identity governance component within the Oracle Identity Management solution. All supported versions of Identity Manager are impacted from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206.0. Most likely 220.127.116.11 through 18.104.22.168 are also vulnerable. Previous Identity Manager

Last week I posted a blog introducing SCAP and OVAL. Here is a quick follow-up with a link to a sql57_test example using the Oracle E-Business Suite - it will suffice for any Oracle database.
Last week’s unprecedented ransomware cyber attacks (http://preview.tinyurl.com/lhjfjgk) caught me working through some research on security automation. The cyber attacks evidently were attributed to an unpatched Windows XP vulnerability. When challenged with securing 1,000s of assets such as all the Windows desktops and Linux servers in an organization, automation quickly becomes a requirement.
The most recent version of the Oracle E-Business Suite, Release 12.2, introduces on-line patching to reduce downtime requirements. This new technical functionality is based on Edition-based redefinition provided by the Oracle 11gR2 database. For the E-Business Suite to make use of Editioning, Oracle has added a new schema to the ‘APPS’ family – the APPS_NE schema.
The APPS_NE schema is the owner of those objects previously owned by APPS that cannot be Editioned or in other words; the APPS_NEW is the APPS schema for the non-editioned database objects.
This is the eleventh and final posting in a blog series summarizing the new Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 Mobile and web services functionality and recommendations for securing them.
The evolution of the Oracle E-Business Suite since its inception in the late 1980s has gone through many significant changes. For example, I can personally remember in the late 1990s upgrading clients to release 10.5 of the E-Business Suite with the big change being the introduction of the APPS schema.
This is the tenth posting in a blog series summarizing the new Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 Mobile and web services functionality and recommendations for securing them.
Oracle Corporation has been building out Mobile and Smartphone applications for the Oracle E-Business Suite for a number of releases. Before release 12.2.5, this functionality was designed only for deployment through a corporate VPN, not through an Oracle E-Business Suite external node over the Internet (e.g. a server in DMZ).
For those of you using and/or considering Unified Auditing, in case you might have missed, Oracle has made significant changes to Unified Auditing in 12.2. Unified Auditing, new in Oracle 12c, represents a complete rewrite of how native database auditing works - see the links below for Integrigy research on Unified Auditing.
