ZDI-10-002: Oracle Secure Backup observiced.exe Remote Code Execution Vulnerability http://www.zerodayinitiative.com/advisories/ZDI-10-002 January 12, 2010
The specific flaw exists in the Oracle Secure Backup Services daemon observiced.exe listening on TCP port 10000 by default. Due to the lack of bounds checking on the reverse lookup of connections to the port a stack overflow can occur leading to a complete compromise of the affected system under the credentials of the SYSTEM account.
