Oracle Critical Updates Released

A short while ago, Oracle released the notes for their Critical Patch Update for a number of applications such as database, middleware, business suites, Sun products and Java.  Due to the threats posed by successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends that users apply the CPU fixes for installed applications as soon as possible.  As always, it is recommended that you review the content available at the below URLs and test the updates prior to deploying these to your production environment.
