THE THREAT

Earlier this week on October 28, 2020 [1] , technical details of the Oracle Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability CVE-2020-14882 were publicly released, and eSentire published an advisory on the topic.

CVE-2020-14882 affects multiple versions of the Oracle WebLogic Server. Exploitation of CVE-2020-14882 is considered trivial and can result in the full takeover of vulnerable Oracle WebLogic Servers.
