Critical Patch Update for January 2007 Now Available

The Critical Patch Update (CPU) for January 2007 is now available. Oracle
strongly recommends applying the patches as soon as possible.

January Critical Patch Update (CPUJan2007) addresses a total of 51
vulnerabilities affecting Oracle Database Server, Oracle Applications
Server, Oracle Collaboration Suite, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle
Enterprise Manager, and Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise Applications.

For More Information

The Critical Patch Update Advisory on the OTN Critical Patch Updates and Security Alerts Center
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.

is essential to review the Critical Patch Update supporting
documentation before applying patches, since this is where you can find
important relevant information.

The next four Critical Patch Update release dates are:
  • April 17, 2007
  • July 17, 2007
  • October 16, 2007
  • January 15, 2008


One good thing for CPU patches would be listing which additional patches are required incase you apply CPU July 2006 for example as it produces quite many new errors which then require patches.

Thanks for the suggestion, Simo.If you're getting a lot of errors, I'd recommend logging a Service Request with Oracle Support; that will help us identify any documentation issues arising from misidentified or missing prerequisites.Regards,Steven

I inherited an EBS setup that has only had the July 2006 CPU installed and I hear that it was quite painful getting that loaded. At time time, the thought was that the CPU patches were cumulative. When I came onboard a few months ago, I pointed out that the CPUs are *not* cumulative. I know that some of the ATG CPU patches are included in RUP4, which I plan to attempt after phase II patches are installed. My question is what next? Do I go back in time and install all the CPUs from 2005 & 2006 before I do Jan 2007? Or do I just get RUP4, Oct. 2006 & Jan 2007? I'm a one man Apps DBA team here, so trying to get all these patches installed while doing my day-to-day duties will most likely be a very painful process. Please advise. Thanks for your great Blog!!

Steve,I sympathize with your situation, and can appreciate your desire to simplify the process.CPUs are cumulative for the underlying technology components, but are not cumulative for the E-Business Suite.  In general, the most efficient approach for catching up is to apply the latest ATG Family Pack Rollup, which represent cumulative rollups of all E-Business Suite security fixes.That said, I might be doing you a disservice to attempt to make a recommendation based on these relatively scant details about your environment.  Your best bet would be to log a Service Request with Oracle Support, to ensure that someone works through the analysis and recommendations with you formally.Best of luck with your new responsibilities.Regards,Steven
