back to article Using Oracle WebLogic? Put down your coffee, drop out of Discord, grab this patch right now: Vuln under attack

Oracle has issued an emergency critical update to address a remote code execution vulnerability in its WebLogic Server component for Fusion Middleware – a flaw miscreants are exploiting in the wild to hijack systems.

    ….would be well-advised to read and follow Oracle's advisories

    Reading is one thing, following is another.....

    Oracle's patching advisories (at least from WebLogic/Fusion Middleware) seem to be designed to make it as difficult/opaque as possible to work out what actually needs to be done....

    (I have been patching 10.3.6 today....)

      ... and why should patching WebLogic be any easier or transparent than any of Oracle's other middleware, let alone its database products? This is _Oracle_ WebLogic, after all!

      Indeed, The KnownSec 404 Team Announcement was actually more useful in terms of providing mitigations.

      Temporary Solution

      Scenario-1:

      Find and delete wls9_async_response.war, wls-wsat.war and restart the Weblogic service

      Scenario-2:

      Controls URL access for the /_async/* and /wls-wsat/* paths by access policy control.
