Oracle issued an advisory today listing both security updates and detailing what is known and unknown about the Heartbleed vulnerability’s impact on Oracle products.
“The Oracle Global Product Security and Development teams are investigating the use of the affected OpenSSL cryptographic libraries in Oracle products and will provide mitigation instructions when available for these affected Oracle products,” Oracle noted in its advisory. “Note that only a number of OpenSSL cryptographic libraries versions were reported as affected by vulnerability CVE-2014-0160. In other words, certain Oracle products, while they may be reported as using OpenSSL, may not be using versions of OpenSSL that were reported as vulnerable to CVE-2014-016.”
The products known to be vulnerable include and for which there are patches are: MySQL Connector/C 6.1.0-6.1.3; MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.1.13, 5.2.5-5.2.6 and 5.3.2; MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.10.0; MySQL Enterprise Monitor 2.3.13-2.3.15 and 3.0.0-3.0.8; MySQL Enterprise Server 5.6.11-5.6.17 and MySQL Workbench 6.1.4 and earlier. Other products known to be vulnerable that have patches available are: Oracle Big Data Appliance; Oracle Communications Interactive Session Recorder 4.0.0 and later; Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control 5.0.1; Oracle Communications Session Monitor Suite 3.3.40 and 3.3.50; Oracle Linux 6; Oracle Mobile Security Suite; Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance Software; and Solaris 11.2.
There are other products that are considered likely to be vulnerable but have no fixes, such as Java ME – JSRs and Optional Packages and Oracle Communications Session Delivery Management Suite NNC 7.3. Several other products, including Java CAPS 6.2 and Siebel CRM, are considered by Oracle to be potentially vulnerable but are still investigation.
“Oracle’s Cloud security and development teams are aware of the publicly disclosed vulnerability in certain versions of OpenSSL (a.k.a. CVE-2014-0160; or ‘Heartbleed’),” according to the advisory. “Oracle is investigating the implications of this issue across the Oracle stack.”
“The Oracle Cloud uses a “defense in depth” approach to security, which provides risk mitigation due to layered controls,” Oracle noted. Oracle has assessed that the infrastructure, systems and applications used to provide Oracle Cloud services (“Cloud infrastructure”) were not at risk from this vulnerability, due to Oracle’s network architecture and use of SSL accelerators that have not been reported as vulnerable to CVE-2014-0160. Furthermore, Oracle has assessed our Cloud infrastructure using a number of automated and manual tests and continues to believe that it is not currently at risk from the CVE-2014-0160 vulnerability.”
