Oracle's Critical Patch Update April 2024

Ben Morris 17-Apr-2024 15:18:25

Each quarter, Oracle releases its Critical Patch Update (CPU) - a comprehensive package of fixes aimed at addressing a wide range of security vulnerabilities. These patches are designed to combat potential threats that may linger within Oracle's products, covering everything from code-related issues to vulnerabilities in third-party components. By consistently applying these updates, you can effectively fortify the security and stability of your Oracle technologies.

This quarter's update includes 441 new security patches across a range of Oracle products, as well as 285 particularly concerning vulnerabilities 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.
