Oracle to Release Security Update

Oracle plans to update its customers tomorrow with 59 security patches, including 13 for Oracle database products. Twenty-one of the security fixes affect the Solaris product suite.

Oracle is prepping a massive update for July 13 to fix 59 new security vulnerabilities across its products.

The fixes follow an update in April that covered 47 vulnerabilities across Oracle's product lines. This time, 21 of the 59 impact the Solaris product suite, which the company acquired when it bought Sun Microsystems. Seven of those can be exploited remotely without authentication, according to Oracle's pre-patch advisory. Among the Oracle Solaris Suite products affected by the vulnerabilities are Solaris, Solaris Studio and Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server.

Oracle also has plans for 13 fixes for its database products, including six for the Oracle Database Server. There are also two patches for the TimesTen In-Memory Database and five patches for Oracle Secure Backup.

Sixteen security fixes are slated for Oracle Applications, while seven are coming for Oracle Fusion Middleware. There is also one for Oracle Enterprise Manager.

"Some of the vulnerabilities addressed in this Critical Patch Update affect multiple products," Oracle stated in the advisory. "Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply Critical Patch Update fixes as soon as possible."
