Share this article:

Following Microsoft and Adobe in rolling out patches tomorrow, Oracle is to cover 47 security vulnerability fixes across its products.

Of those vulnerabilities, 16 are in Sun Solaris, seven are for the Oracle Database, eight are for the Oracle Applications Suite and six are for Oracle Industry Applications.

Also, five are for the Oracle Fusion Middleware, four are for the Oracle PeopleSoft and JD Edwards Suite, while one is for the Oracle Collaboration Suite. Many of the component fixes are rated as critical.

Meanwhile, The Inquirer has reported that Oracle's chief architect Edward Screven will deliver a keynote at its MySQL conference this month, where he plans to detail the firm's plans for the open source database management system.

Oracle has announced that it will host MySQL advisory boards and provide customers with a forum for learning about changes and enhancements. Screven said: “MySQL is strategic to Oracle and we are making investments to further develop, promote and support the MySQL products.

“We're looking forward to outlining our plans for MySQL and providing the development community with deeper insight into the enhancements they can expect right now and moving forward.”
