Oracle has published the first Critical Patch Update in 2017. It’s quite a huge update with not less than 270 new security vulnerability fixes across the Oracle products. For the Oracle Database itself are 5 security fixes available respectively 2 security fixes for the Oracle Database Server and 3 security fixes for Oracle Secure Backup and Oracle Big Data Graph.
Neither of the two vulnerabilities for Oracle Databases are remotely exploitable without authentication. None of these fixes are applicable to client-only installations.
The highest CVSS Base Score of vulnerabilities affecting Oracle Database Server is 9.0. The following components are affected:
- RDBMS Security / Local Logon
Over all the PSU for Oracle Database Server itself is relatively small. The tests for the Trivadis CPU-Report will show if there are any issues with this PSU respectively SPU.
