Oracle Critical Patch Update for October 2008 Now Available

The Critical Patch Update for October 2008 was released on October 14, 2008. 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:

  • January 13, 2009
  • April 14, 2009
  • July 14, 2009
  • October 13, 2009

Hi Steven,

for ebs related CPU patches - would it make sense to include in the documentation products affected for each patch? For example patch 999999 affects fnd,jtf,wms,ap.

It's not that many patches usually to check out but would be good add-on to documentation.

regards,
Simo

Hi, Simo,

Thanks for the suggestion. I've passed it along to our Security team for their consideration.

Regards,
Steven

Hello Steve,

Hope you are well.

Related to security, but unrelated to this post of yours, is this thread from the forums

If true, hopefully there is an easy fix.

Thanks
