Just before Easter, Oracle released security updates for a total of nearly 300 vulnerabilities, along with an urgent call to patch as quickly as possible.
The latest Critical Update Patch Update is designed to iron out vulnerabilities in over a dozen products, including the entire Fusion Middleware, for a total of 53 new security fixes obtained. Over 40 of these vulnerabilities could also be exploited remotely – without access to network or user access data.
The Oracle E-Business Suite includes 35 security fixes in the Critical Patch Update – 33 of them for remote exploitable bugs.
Also at the top of the list of affected product groups was Oracle Communications Applications, which received 26 security fixes for vulnerabilities, 19 of which were remotely exploitable.
In addition, retail applications with 24 and Oracle Database Server and Java SE each have a single-digit number of fixes.
Oracle strives to patch customers as quickly as possible and avoid temporary workarounds
Since the vulnerabilities have been revealed, as well as reports of attempts to exploit the vulnerabilities, Oracle recommends that the critical patches be loaded as quickly as possible. Here we can only agree with Oracle!
