By sending a specially crafted HTTP request, attackers can exploit this vulnerability to execute malicious code of their choice on the target server. This gives them complete control of the system and access to all data.

To protect yourself, make sure you apply the latest patches from Oracle to fix this vulnerability. Regularly updating your systems is one of the best ways to prevent exploitation. You should also consider additional security measures like firewalls, intrusion detection and limiting network access to only authorized users.

Staying on top of software updates and implementing proper access controls and monitoring can help secure your Oracle WebLogic Server deployment from remote attacks exploiting this vulnerability. Act now to patch any affected systems on your network.
