Oracle to issue 78 bug fixes

The fixes cover Oracle's database, middleware, applications and Sun hardware

Oracle is planning to issue 78 patches covering a number of its software products on Tuesday, including 13 fixes for its flagship database, according to a statement posted to its website on Thursday.

The database patches cover a number of database editions, including 11g R1 and R2, as well as 10G R1 and R2. Two of the vulnerabilities can be exploited over a network without login credentials.

Another three patches cover Oracle's Secure Backup product, all of which can be exploited remotely without authentication.

Oracle plans to issue seven patches for various modules in its Fusion Middleware line, while Enterprise Manager Grid Control will get 18 fixes.

E-Business Suite and Oracle's supply chain products will get one patch each, while a dozen are scheduled to be released for PeopleSoft.

Oracle is also rolling out 23 patches for products gained through the acquisition of Sun Microsystems, including GlassFish Server, VirtualBox, Solaris, SPARC Enterprise M Series and SPARC T3 series. Nine of the weaknesses can be exploited over a network without requiring a username or password, Oracle said.

The patch batch scheduled for Tuesday is roughly the same size as the previous update in April, which included 73 fixes. Oracle has been issuing patches for Java SE on separate dates, with the most recent set arriving last month.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
