Oracle released a large security update on Tuesday, its last of the year, that includes 85 security patches.
The update runs the gamut of Oracle products: Oracle Database 11g Release 1 and Release 2, Fusion Middleware, Application Server, Identity Management, BI Publisher, E-Business Suite, Agile, Transportation Management, PeopleSoft, Siebel, Primavera, Sun Products and Oracle VM are all included in the patches.
Oracle security upgrades are typically released on the Tuesday closest to the 15th day of January, April, July and October. So the next scheduled security update is expected on Jan. 18, 2011, followed by April 19, July 19 and Oct. 18.
