Oracle to issue 59 critical patches

Twenty-one are for Solaris products

Oracle on Tuesday will release 59 patches to fix security weaknesses affecting hundreds of products, according to a notice on its Web site.

Twenty-one of the vulnerabilities affect products related to Solaris, the Unix operating system Oracle acquired through its purchase of Sun Microsystems. Seven of them can be exploited remotely over a network without requiring a password or username, Oracle said.

Among the Solaris products in question are OpenSSO, Solaris Studio, Sun Convergence and Glassfish Enterprise Server.

The update also includes 13 patches for Oracle's database product line. Seven are for remotely exploitable vulnerabilities in the TimesTen in-memory database component and the Secure Backup product. Those weaknesses received CVSS (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) scores of 10.0, the most severe on the scale.

Seven other fixes target Fusion Middleware products. Another 16 are for E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards and other applications. One patch is included for an issue with Enterprise Manager.

Oracle recommends that users apply the patches as soon as possible, the site states.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
