Vulnerability DetailsThis vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Oracle Secure Backup. User interaction is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

Due to a lack of bounds checking on a specific command sequence the program stack can be overwritten with user controlled data. Successful exploitation can lead to remote system compromise under the SYSTEM credentials.
