Oracle, the financial software providers, have warned its users to make
updates to its products to avoid security attacks.
The company is warning their systems may be vulnerable unless the updates are
made to the various products.
Oracle is advising users to make “patch” updates – updating small components
in a system – to fix the security and vulnerability issues
“This Critical Patch Update contains 24 new security vulnerability fixes
across hundreds of Oracle products. Some of the vulnerabilities addressed in
this Critical Patch Update affect multiple products,” noted a pre-release
announcement by Oracle.
“Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends
that customers apply Critical Patch Update fixes as soon as possible.”
In comparison Microsoft started the year with one of its smallest patch
releases with just one update needed.
