October 19, 2006

Database vendor Oracle has released a critical security patch update that closes no less than 122 security vulnerabilities across the company's databases, enterprise applications, developer tools and middleware applications. Oracle issues its security updates on a quarterly basis and is now using a system that assigns a severity score to its security holes on a scale of 1 to 10.

The database developer has also started providing additional information indicating whether a security flaw can be exploited by remote attackers without any authentication credentials. Oracle's new system is designed to help systems administrators identify the most urgent security issues.

The most important security hole was assigned a base score of 7.0 and affects Oracle Application Express. The company's flagship database received a total of twenty-two fixes, with the most severe ranked at 4.2.

Overall, the scores are assigned using the industry standard CVSS (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) which is also used by networking giant Cisco Systems.

David Litchfield, a representative from Next Generation Security Software, severely criticised Oracle for failing to deliver its patches on all platforms.

Patches for Oracle databases and will not be available until the end of October 2006.

Users running Oracle on Linux Power servers will also have to wait until the end of this month, as will users running Oracle on the Windows operating system.

"In July 2006, and after a successful critical patch update release, when Oracle had all the patches ready, it is really disappointing to see Oracle slipping back into its old bad habits," said Litchfield.
