Two patch updates were released in October 2011, reports Eric Maurice in his oracle.com/security blog. One is the October 2011 Critical Patch Update and the other the Critical Patch Update for Java SE/. The latter provides fixes for 20 new security vulnerabilities, Maurice reports, and the former provides fixes for 57 new security vulnerabilities across Oracle Database Server, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Supply Chain Products Suite, Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise, Oracle Siebel CRM, Oracle Linux and Virtualization, and Oracle Sun product suite.
