A Critical Patch Update is a collection of patches for multiple security vulnerabilities. These patches are usually cumulative, but each advisory describes only the security patches added since the previous Critical Patch Update Advisory. Thus, prior Critical Patch Update advisories should be reviewed for information regarding earlier published security patches. Please refer to:
Oracle continues to periodically receive reports of attempts to maliciously exploit vulnerabilities for which Oracle has already released security patches. In some instances, it has been reported that attackers have been successful because targeted customers had failed to apply available Oracle patches. Oracle therefore strongly recommends that customers remain on actively-supported versions and apply Critical Patch Update security patches without delay.
Oracle acknowledges people who have contributed to our On-Line Presence Security program (see FAQ). People are acknowledged for contributions relating to Oracle’s on-line presence if they provide information, observations or suggestions pertaining to security-related issues that result in significant modification to Oracle’s on-line external-facing systems.
