Oracle issuing 66 patches

Oracle's database, middleware and applications are getting a big batch of fixes

Oracle is planning on Tuesday to release 66 security patches affecting hundreds of products, according to a notice posted on its website.

A number of the patches are for vulnerabilities that meet the most serious risk level under the Common Vulnerability Scoring System, Oracle said. Products affected include Oracle Audit Vault, JRockit, Solaris and WebLogic Server.

Six of the patches fix vulnerabilities in Oracle's flagship database. Two of the bugs can be exploited remotely without a user name or password.

16 patches target Oracle middleware products. 12 of those vulnerabilities allow for remote exploitation without authentication, Oracle said.

Other fixes are aimed at Oracle's Enterprise Manager, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Glassfish and OpenOffice.

Oracle is also set to release patches for Java SE and Java for Business in February.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
