Oracle Issued Security Update of DDoS Vulnerability in Apache HTTPD

Oracle, the giant enterprise database company - and, of course, owner of the erstwhile Sun Microsystems - has just published an out-of-band security update. This is only the fifth time Oracle has issued an alert outside its routine quarterly patch cycle since introducing its own version of Patch Tuesday at the start of 2005.

This security alert addresses the security issue CVE-2011-3192, a denial of service vulnerability in Apache HTTPD, which is applicable to Oracle HTTP Server products based on Apache 2.0 or 2.2. This vulnerability may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e. it may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password. A remote user can exploit this vulnerability to impact the availability of un-patched systems.

Affected Products and Versions:-

  • Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1, versions,,
  • Oracle Application Server 10g Release 3, version (Only affected when Oracle HTTP Server 10g based on Apache 2.0 has been installed from Application Server Companion CD)
  • Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2, version (Only affected when Oracle HTTP Server 10g based on Apache 2.0 has been installed from Application Server Companion CD)

Please note that Oracle Enterprise Manager includes the Oracle Fusion Middleware component that is affected by this vulnerability. Oracle Enterprise Manager is affected only if the affected Oracle Fusion Middleware version (noted above) is being used. Since a vulnerability affecting Oracle Fusion Middleware versions may affect Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle recommends that customers apply the fix for this vulnerability to the Oracle Fusion Middleware component of Oracle Enterprise Manager.
