Example text

Should these applications be considered a part of the database? Is Microsoft’s MSDE a different database than SQL Server? They are certainly used in different ways and have a number of differing components, but they were both subject to the UDP Resolution Service bug that was the basis for the “Slammer” worm. Even if we were able to determine some weighted metric that accounted for age, stability, scrutiny, scope, and severity of published vulnerabilities, we would still be considering only “patchable” issues, rather than the inherent security features provided by the database.

This book is largely composed of a lot of very specific details about the security features and flaws in a number of databases, but you should notice common threads running through the text. We hope that by the end of the book you will have a much better understanding of how to attack the seven databases we address directly here, but also a deeper understanding of how to attack databases in general. With luck, this will translate into databases that are configured, maintained, and audited by people who are far more skilled than the people who attack them.

So, if you are actually concerned about your Oracle security or lack thereof, read on. Examining the Oracle Architecture We begin this chapter by examining the physical layout of the database, such as the Oracle processes and how they interact with the network. We move on to examining authentication and authorization and then move to the logical layout of the database. Oracle Processes and Oracle on the Network This section describes the major components of Oracle and their interaction with the network.
