CVE-2016-3510 Scanner Detail

Oracle WebLogic Server is a leading enterprise-level web application server that facilitates the deployment of scalable, secure, and highly available applications. It is widely used by organizations worldwide to host business applications in a robust and efficient computing environment. The server supports a variety of technologies, including Java EE, Node.js, and Python, making it versatile for different application needs. Its features include clustering, load balancing, and extensive management capabilities, enabling organizations to manage their applications and services effectively. Given its critical role in business operations, securing WebLogic Server instances is paramount to protecting sensitive data and ensuring application continuity.

The CVE-2016-3510 vulnerability in Oracle WebLogic Server pertains to an unspecified flaw in the WLS Core Components, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code through Java Object Deserialization. This vulnerability is distinct from others like CVE-2016-3586, highlighting the complex security landscape that Oracle WebLogic Server administrators must navigate. The attack vector is network-based, requiring no user interaction or privileges, which significantly lowers the barrier for exploitation and increases the risk to confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the server.

This critical vulnerability involves the deserialization of untrusted Java objects within Oracle WebLogic Server's core components. Deserialization vulnerabilities occur when an application does not safely or securely handle input before it is deserialized, allowing an attacker to manipulate the serialized data to execute arbitrary code. Specifically, this vulnerability affects versions 10.3.6.0, 12.1.3.0, and 12.2.1.0 of the server, where inadequate validation of user-supplied input can be exploited via crafted T3 protocol requests. Successful exploitation enables attackers to compromise the server and conduct further attacks, such as data theft, service disruption, or the delivery of malware.

Exploitation of this vulnerability can have severe consequences, including complete system compromise, unauthorized access to sensitive data, and disruption of critical business operations. Attackers could leverage this vulnerability to execute malicious code remotely, leading to the installation of malware, data exfiltration, or the creation of backdoors for persistent access. The impact extends beyond the immediate security of the WebLogic Server, potentially affecting the broader network infrastructure and undermining the trust in business-critical applications hosted on the platform.
