How To Bypass .htaccess Controls in Oracle Reports For CVE-2012-3152 and CVE-2012-3153
Security researcher Dana Taylor discovered CVE-2012-3152/3153 back in 2011/2012.
Some system administrators created .htaccess entries that would block /reports/rwservlet/<command>
however by removing the “/” from between rwservlet and the command, you can bypass the htaccess control and access the application.
This means vulnerability scanners will need to be updated, pentesters be made aware of it and IDS/IPS companies will need to create new rules to detect this bypass.
