Nearly 100 Oracle product vulnerabilities require patches

News by Ava Fedorov

Global business tech company, Oracle, has released patches for the nearly one hundred security flaws that have been disclosed this week. This comes just after Microsoft and Adobe's “Patch Tuesday” releases, as part of Oracle's quarterly security updates which are also slated for this month.

The Oracle Database patch will fix four CVE-listed security holes, including vulnerabilities in Java VM and XML Database. Its Java SE updates fix 14 CVE-listed bugs and the Fusion Middleware update will fix 17 CVE flaws, both of which contained flaws that were dangerously exploitable remotely and without authentication. Google, meanwhile, just disabled Java plugins by default in its Chrome browsers.

Other Oracle products that will require patches include Enterprise Manager, Hyperion, JD Edwards/PeopleSoft, Retail Industry Suite, and Health Sciences Applications Suite. 

Oracle has posted a full list of the updated products to its support site.
