Oracle Patch Day

Unbreakable? I don't think so
Wednesday became a busy day for database administrators after Oracle released its quarterly patch update which, this time around, tackles more than eighty vulnerabilities in different Oracle software packages and components. Various flavours of Oracle database (37 security bugs), Oracle E-Business Suite and Applications (27), Oracle Collaboration Suite (20) and Oracle Application Server (17) are most in need of update.

Useful overviews of these security problems have been put together by US CERT (here) and security notification firm Secunia (here).
