Oracle to issue 78 patches, including 27 for MySQL

Other fixes are set for Oracle's database, middleware and applications

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.

Some 17 patches will be released for Sun products, including six that can be remotely exploited with no credentials. Affected products include GlassFish Enterprise Server and the Solaris OS.

Another three patches are for Oracle's virtualization technology, including VirtualBox.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
