The Oracle Patch Update includes 45 security fixes, including 11 for the 
Oracle Database. Also included are nine security fixes for Oracle 
Application Server, seven for Oracle WebLogic Server, two for Oracle 
Enterprise Manager, six for Oracle E-Business Suite and Applications, 
and seven for Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise products.

Oracle released 45 security fixes July 15 as part of its latest Critical 
Patch Update [1].

The patches bring the total for the year to 112 vulnerabilities patched. 
The Oracle Database has the most fixes—a total of 11, none of which can 
be exploited remotely without authentication. The vulnerabilities affect 
a number of components, including Advanced Querying, Advanced 
Replication and the core RDBMS (relational DBMS). There are also three 
fixes affecting the Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database. All three 
address vulnerabilities that can be fixed by upgrading to Version or a later edition of the product.
