A vulnerability, which was classified as critical, was found in Oracle Database Server (Database Software). Affected is an unknown code of the file boundary_rules.jsp. The manipulation of the argument EXPTYPE with an unknown input leads to a cross site scripting vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-80. The product receives input from an upstream component, but it does not neutralize or incorrectly neutralizes special characters such as "<", ">", and "&" that could be interpreted as web-scripting elements when they are sent to a downstream component that processes web pages. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability. CVE summarizes:

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in boundary_rules.jsp in the Administration Front End for Oracle Enterprise (Ultra) Search, as used in Database Server,, and, and in Application Server,, and allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTML or web script via the EXPTYPE parameter, aka SES01.
