Oracle releases July patch batch… with 27 fixes for remote exploits

Oracle releases July patch batch… with 27 fixes for remote exploits: Oracle has pushed out a quarterly patch batch of 89 updates that mean almost all of its enterprise software products need updating for one reason or another.Craig Young, a security researcher at Tripwire, noted that most of the vulnerabilities were picked up by third-party researchers. “The constant drumbeat of critical Oracle patches is more than a little alarming particularly because the vulnerabilities are frequently reported by third parties who presumably do not have access to full source code,” he said. “This month’s Critical Patch Update credits 18 different researchers coming from more than a dozen different companies.”
