Oracle Outside In OS/2 Metafile parser buffer overflow

oracle-cpuoct2013-cve20135763-bo (88557) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

Oracle Outside In technology is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the OS/2 Metafile parser. By causing a vulnerable application to process a malicious file, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of the application.

Note: It has been reported that some platforms could allow remote code execution via the Oracle Outside In libraries.
