Financial software giant unveils one of its biggest security updates to start off the new year

Oracle, the financial software providers, have warned its users to make

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

reported.

“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.”

releases with just one update needed.
