Oracle has released a group of critical security patches for a number of the company’s products. These patches mark the first time Oracle has released security updates after deciding in 2004 to do so on a quarterly basis.

The patches fix several security vulnerabilities. According to InfoWorld,

“The update contains patches for a wide array of security vulnerabilities found in Oracle’s database, application server, collaboration suite and e-business suite and is available to customers who have purchased Oracle’s Extended Maintenance Support or Extended Support plans.

Included in the update is a fix for a vulnerability discovered by security software vendor Next Generation Security Software that allow attackers to gain unauthorized privileges or commit buffer overflow attacks on Oracle’s database software.”

Details for the vulnerabilities will be released in April. For more information, please visit Oracle.
