Oracle Database Server Core RDBMS component is prone to a remote vulnerability that allows attackers to exploit a stack-based buffer overflow in the EXECUTE procedure of DBMS_AW.

This module requires database user credentials with 'Create Session' privilege. This update fixes a variable referenced before assignment bug.
