Rule Category

PROTOCOL-DNS -- Snort alerted on a Domain Name Server (DNS) protocol issue. These packets travel over UDP on port 53 to serve DNS queries--user website requests through a browser. Several vulnerability use-cases exist (ie, additional data could be sent with a request, which would contact a DNS server pre-prepared to send information back and forth).

Alert Message

PROTOCOL-DNS Oracle Secure Backup observice.exe dns response overflow attempt

Rule Explanation

Unspecified vulnerability in the Oracle Secure Backup component in Oracle Secure Backup 10.2.0.3 allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the January 2010 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a reliable researcher that this is a buffer overflow in observiced.exe that allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to a "reverse lookup of connections" to TCP port 10000.
