Teamshatter’s analysis of the April 2012 oracle cpu
t’s a Wednesday in mid-April, so it’s Oracle CPU fallout time again. This April 2012 CPU contains 88 fixes across various Oracle product lines. Specifically, Database, Fusion Middleware, Enterprise Manager, E-Business Suite, Supply Chain, PeopleSoft, Siebel Health Sciences, Financial Services, Primavera, various Sun products and MySQL .
33 of the fixes in this CPU are for vulnerabilities that are remotely exploitable without authentication. In other words, anybody on the network can exploit these vulnerabilities. Three of the product lines have fixes for vulnerabilities that allow for a complete takeover of the host, Database, Fusion Middleware (JRockit) and Oracle Grid Engine.
