Oracle critical patch update includes 24 fixes

The latest batch includes remedies for serious database vulnerabilities

Oracle on Tuesday will release a patch update that includes 24 security fixes for its database, application server and other products.

Ten of the patches affect Oracle's database, and two of the vulnerabilities addressed can be remotely exploited over a network without the need for a username and password, Oracle said.

Affected database components include Application Express Application Builder, Listener, Data Pump, OLAP, Secure Backup, Spatial and Universal Installer. Both 11g and 10g database releases are affected.

The update also includes three fixes for Oracle's application server. All three address vulnerabilities that can be exploited without a username or password. They affect the server's Access Manager Identity Server and Oracle Containers for J2EE components.

Other patches fix problems with Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, JRockit and Primavera.

Oracle employs the CVSS (common vulnerability scoring system) to indicate how serious security issues are. Vulnerabilities affecting Listener for Oracle Database Server, Secure Backup and JRockit received the most severe score, 10.0.

Full details of the latest update are available on Oracle's Web site.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
