VULNERABILITY DETAILS


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

The specific flaw exists in the handling of requests to the controlSoapBinding web service.

This can be leveraged by an attacker gain to remote code execution under the context of the current user.
