Oracle's Critical Patch Update April 2023

Ben Morris 20-Apr-2023 16:05:13

Oracle issues a Critical Patch Update (CPU) every quarter that includes a set of fixes for multiple security vulnerabilities. The patches address potential security threats in Oracle's products, including both code and third-party components. 

This quarter's update includes 433 new security patches across a range of Oracle products, as well as 298 vulnerabilities that are particularly concerning because they may be remotely exploitable without authentication (over a network without requiring user credentials to access); therefore, we strongly recommend customers to apply CPU fixes as soon as possible and prioritise these patches.

Organisations frequently approach us at this time to utilise our Oracle Consultancy services and stay on top of their patches. So, please get in touch if this is an area of concern for you.
