Oracle Critical Patch Updates for April 2014

Oracle has released April 2014 critical Patch Updates addressing serious flaws and vulnerabilities that have been identified. ” Critical Patch Update patches are usually cumulative, but each advisory describes only the security fixes added since the previous Critical Patch Update advisory” (Oracle, 2014). The patches address  104 security vulnerabilities consisting of Fusion Middleware, Hyperion, Oracle Database, Supply Chain Product Suite,  Siebel CRM, Java SE, and Sun Microsystems Products Suite, including Oracle Linux and Virtualization, iLearning , People-soft Enterprise and Oracle MySQL (Summerised in table 1 below). Due to the serious security lapses caused  by threats and vulnerabilities oracle recommends applying the patches as soon as possible . This Critical Patch Update contains 104 new security fixes across the product families listed below.

“Among the patches that should be prioritized are two bugs in Oracle’s database products. The more severe of these two issues could lead to a full compromise of impacted Windows systems, though exploitation would require that an attacker authenticate him or herself. Other platforms like Linux and Solaris are less affected because the database does not extend into the underlying operating system there”( Threatpost , 2014). Also fixing five vulnerabilities affecting Oracle Linux and Virtualization products. To find out more Click here to visit Oracle site
