Oracle to release 115 security patches

Java SE and Fusion Middleware alone will receive nearly 50 fixes in Tuesday's update

Oracle is planning to release 115 security patches for vulnerabilities affecting a wide array of its products, including its flagship database, Java SE, Fusion Middleware and business applications.

The update includes fixes for 20 weaknesses in Java SE, all of which can be exploited by an attacker remotely, without the need for login credentials, Oracle said in an announcement prior to Tuesday's patch release.

Some 29 fixes are for Oracle's Fusion Middleware suite, with 27 able to be exploited over a network without the need for authentication. Affected middleware components include BI Publisher, GlassFish Server, HTTP Server, JDeveloper, WebCenter Portal and WebLogic Server.

Six other patches are for Oracle's database. Two of the vulnerabilities can be exploited remotely without login credentials.

Another seven patches target Hyperion, one of Oracle's BI (business intelligence) products.

The update also includes fixes for security weaknesses in a range of Oracle applications, including E-Business Suite, Siebel CRM, PeopleSoft, Oracle Retail Applications and Primavera.

Oracle Virtualization will get 15 fixes, eight of which target vulnerabilities that can be exploited over the Internet without login credentials.

Finally, some 10 fixes will ship for MySQL. None of the related vulnerabilities can be attacked remotely without authentication.

Oracle releases patches on a quarterly basis. The last update, in April, delivered 104 fixes.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
