Oracle Plugs 51 Security Flaws

As a part of its quarterly patch cycle, Oracle released fixes for 51 vulnerabilities that affect its software products. The California company preannounced the patch release on Thursday (for the first time) and released patches on Tuesday. 27 fixes were announced and 26 were released for the company's database products.

"An issue was detected with one of the database fixes for a number of database versions. Per our policy...we removed the fix from the January CPU. We are working to resolve this issue to release the fix on all supported database versions with the next CPU in April," said Eric Maurice, manager for security at Oracle.

Oracle also released repairs for 12 flaws in Application Server, 7 in E-Business Suite, 6 in Enterprise Manager and 3 in PeopleSoft. Many bugs are serious and should be patched up asap because of remote attacker holes. Oracle's next patch release is due on April 17, 2007.
