Oracle Critical Patch Update for April 2017 Released

Phil Catalano
Principal Technical Support Engineer

The Critical
Patch Update for April 2017 was released on April 18th, 2017.

Oracle strongly recommends applying the patches as soon as possible.


The Critical Patch Update Advisory is the starting point for relevant
information. It includes the list of products affected, pointers to obtain the
patches, a summary of the security vulnerabilities for each product suite, and
links to other important documents. Supported products that are not listed in
the "Affected Products and Components" 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.
