The Workspace Manager in Oracle 10g release 1 and 2 and Oracle 9i is
vulnerable to SQL injection.

package is owned and defined by the SYS user and can be executed by PUBLIC.
LT contains a procedure called FINDRICSET which calls the FINDRICSET package
in the LTRIC package. This is vulnerable to SQL injection and can be abused
by an attacker to gain SYS privileges.
