VULNERABILITY DETAILS

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Oracle Beehive. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists within 'voice-servlet/prompt-qa/Index.jspf'. During the creation of a file used for storing an evaluation parameter user supplied data is used to create a filename and another user specified field is later used to populate that file's contents. By inserting a null byte (0x00) into the filename the user can control the extension of the newly created file. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code under the context of the oracle user.
