Oracle to Issue 78 Patches, Including 27 for MySQLJanuary 13, 2012 No Comments
Oracle is set on Tuesday to release 78 security fixes for vulnerabilities in its database, middleware and applications, according to a preview announcement posted to the company’s website this week.
A full 27 of those are targeted for the MySQL database. One of the vulnerabilities can be exploited over a network without log-in credentials. The highest CVSS (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) Base Score among the MySQL bugs is 5.5, which falls into the system’s “medium” risk range.
Two other fixes are for Oracle’s database, and Oracle is also planning to ship 11 patches for Fusion Middleware. Five of the bugs in the latter can be remotely exploited with no user authentication required.
On the application front, the company’s E-Business Suite is getting three patches, its supply chain application suite will receive one, PeopleSoft will get six, and JD Edwards will have eight.APPLICATION INTEGRATION, News
