Steven Chan
Senior Director
The Critical Patch Update (CPU) for July 2010 was released on July 13, 2010. Oracle strongly recommends applying the patches as soon as possible. The Critical Patch Update Advisory is the starting point for relevant information. It includes a list of products affected, pointers to obtain the patches, a summary of the security vulnerabilities, and links to other important documents. Supported Products that are not listed in the "Supported Products and Components Affected" Section of the advisory do not require new patches to be applied. Also, it is essential to review the Critical Patch Update supporting documentation referenced in the Advisory before applying patches, as this is where you can find important pertinent information. The Critical Patch Update Advisory is available at the following location: The next four Critical Patch Update release dates are:
  • October 12, 2010
  • January 18, 2011
  • April 19, 2011
  • July 19, 2011

    I miss Sun...you could get a Patch ID much easier from released CVEs, now it just kicks you to the Oralce CPU patch download page and you can't any details...add the CVEs in the patch cluster readme or something...

    Hello, Syed,

    You should follow the installation instructions in the July 2010 README to apply this Critical Patch Update.

    If you have any questions about installing CPUs, your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

    Hello, Syed,

    I'm afraid that I don't have a lot of visibility into ports for CPUs. Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to request a port for your platform.
