Run Oracle? Want to sleep tonight? Then sort these 113 patches

And that's without Heartbleed patches says Big O, urging haste

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Oracle has emitted its quarterly Critical Patch Update, this time offering a mere 113 patches sysadmins and security folks should get busy implementing.

This time around there's 29 fixes for Oracle Fusion Middleware, 20 for Java SE, ten in MySQL Server, seven in Hyperion products and five apiece for Oracle database and E-Business Suite.

The new patch dump excludes Heartbleed fixes, as Big O shoved those out the door back in April.

The Java patches are the most urgent as one, CVE-2014-4227, scores ten out of ten in the common vulnerability rating system.

Oracle has published the full list of patches here and some comments on the patches here.

The company is urging users to get patching fast, “due to the threat posed by a successful attack.” ®
