Introduction

Esri® announces the ArcGIS 10.1 SP1 for Server Security Patch. This patch address two security vulnerabilities in ArcGIS Server that expose internal information via map and feature service queries. ArcGIS Server map and feature services typically allow queries using a where clause against layers in a map. When certain values are provided via the where clause, it is possible to obtain internal information from the relational database including the name of the table owner, the name of the machine where the database resides, and information stored in database system tables that the database account has access to. It deals specifically with the issues listed below under Issues Addressed with this Patch.
