Malware sites offering Oracle 'patches'


It has come to our attention that there are non-Oracle sites offering Oracle 'fixes' for genuine Oracle error messages.

You probably already don't need to be told, however:

please do not download these fixes as

  • they are not authorized by us in any way and
  • are more than likely to be dangerous to your system

If you do encounter one of these sites please inform us immediately via  Communities or create a SR and we will rectify the situation.

If you are unsure if a patch can be trusted, contact us as well via  Communities or create a SR.

Proactive Support are already investigating some known sites.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to make people aware that

any article in MOS is copyrighted by Oracle.

So please refrain from re-posting MOS articles on external sites. Instead, if you find a useful article and are interested in sharing it, please pass a description and the MOS Document ID, so that users can easily find the article.
