Oracle Database 11g, Oracle Database 10g, Oracle Secure Backup, Oracle Application Server, Oracle JRockit, Oracle Enterprise Manager and Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise are products and components identified by Oracle as having flaws and requiring patches. The company urges customers to apply CPU fixes as soon as possible, reports ZD Net. An advisory issued by the company details the risk severity, patch availability and mitigation guidance.

78 critical database server flaws identified by Oracle.

"Until you apply the CPU fixes, it may be possible to reduce the risk of successful attack by blocking network protocols required by an attack. For attacks that require certain privileges or access to certain packages, removing the privileges or the ability to access the packages from users that do not need the privileges may help reduce the risk of successful attack. Both approaches may break application functionality, so Oracle strongly recommends that customers test changes on non-production systems. Neither approach should be considered a long-term solution as neither corrects the underlying problem.”
