Oracle Fixes Pile of Bugs

Joris Evers writes on C|Net News:

As part of its quarterly patch cycle, Oracle on Tuesday released fixes for a long list of security vulnerabilities in many of its products.

The "Critical Patch Update" delivers remedies for 37 flaws related to Oracle's Database products, 17 related to Application Server, 20 to the Collaboration Suite, 27 to E-Business Suite and Applications, one to PeopleSoft's Enterprise Portal and one in JD Edwards software.

Some of the flaws carry Oracle's most serious rating, which means they are easy to exploit and an attack can have a wide impact, according to the alert. "Several of these vulnerabilities are significant, and should be patched as soon as possible," security provider Symantec said in an alert to users of its DeepSight intelligence service.
