Oracle To Release Critical Update For 78 Vulnerabilities

Enterprise software maker Oracle is planning to issue a total of 78 bug fixes for its software offerings, the company has announced.

The company, which is planning to release the Critical Patch update on Tuesday July 19th, said that 13 of the bug fixes were for vulnerabilities in the Oracle Database Server.

“2 of these vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password. 2 of these fixes are applicable to client-only installations, i.e., installations that do not have the Oracle Database Server installed,” Oracle explained in a post.

The company also said that it was also releasing three patches fixing vulnerabilities in its Secure Backup product, which can be remotely exploited by hackers.

Meanwhile, the company also said that it plans to release 7 patches covering its Fusion Middleware line and 18 patches for its Enterprise Manager Grid Control.

According to an article on PC World, Oracle will also release 23 patches for software products it received with the acquisition of Sun Microsystems including the GlassFish Server, VirtualBox, Solaris, SPARC Enterprise M Series and SPARC T3 series.
