Oracle released CPU / PSU January 2013

As announced in my post about Oracle’s pre-release announcement of last week, Oracle has now released the first Critical Patch Updates for 2013. Overall this CPU contains 86 new security fixes across several Oracle products like Database Server, MySQL Server, Sun Product Suite, WebLogic Server etc. For products like Oracle Database Mobile it does contain quite some critical security fixes with a CVSS Rating of 10. On the other hand there’s just one security fix for regular oracle database servers. This security fix relates merely to the SPATIAL option. For a variety of Oracle database server, which do not use the spatial option, this CPU is not so critical. It’s probably worth waiting for the CPU april 2013.

CPU Release Dates

The next four Critical Patch Updates will be released at the following dates:

  • 16 April 2013
  • 16 July 2013
  • 15 October 2013
  • 14 January 2014
