Oracle DB SQL Injection via SYS.LT.FINDRICSET Evil Cursor Method



This module will escalate an Oracle DB user to DBA by exploiting a sql injection bug in the SYS.LT.FINDRICSET package via Evil Cursor technique. Tested on oracle -- should work on thru and supposedly on 11g. Fixed with Oracle Critical Patch update October 2007.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/sqli/oracle/lt_findricset_cursor
msf auxiliary(lt_findricset_cursor) > show actions
msf auxiliary(lt_findricset_cursor) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(lt_findricset_cursor) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(lt_findricset_cursor) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
