Oracle Critical Updates

databases

oracle logoOracle has released a critical patch update for several of its products, (database server, enterprise manager, application server, e-business suite, workflow, forms, reports, JInitiator, developer suite, and express server).

A Critical Patch Update is a collection of patches for multiple security vulnerabilities. It also includes non-security fixes that are required (because of interdependencies) by those security patches. The Oracle Database Server, Enterprise Manager, and the Oracle Application Server patches in the Updates are cumulative; each successive Critical Patch Update contains the fixes from the previous Critical Patch Updates.

If your running Oracle software, you will want to be sure you have updated your servers. A good way to keep on top of security is to use a service that notifies you of security issues like HackMyCF (paid) or stach.watch to follow oracle updates (free).
