A sudden, short-lived bout of severe turbulence was experienced in the vicinity of cumulonimbus (CB) cloud at FL120. The autopilot disengaged, an oil pressure warning light illuminated briefly and the aircraft climbed almost 800 ft before being flown back to FL120. Both cabin crew members suffered minor injuries but the flight was able to continue to its destination. There was superficial damage to the cabin furnishings.
