Single Sign-On Security Issue in 11.2.0.2 Patchset

18 11 2010

I just browsed though Metalink (MOS) to see which operating system platforms are currently supported for Oracle Database 11.2.0.2.  I noticed that the 11.2.0.2 patchset for 64 bit Linux was updated yesterday, and more digging revealed that all of the 11.2.0.2 patches for the other supported operating systems were also recently updated.

Take a look at Metalink Doc ID 1179474.1 and 1266978.1 for more information to see if you should re-download the 4.7GB patchset.

If you have some time, and you are planning to upgrade to Oracle Database 11.2.0.2, spend a little time reading on Metalink – it is interesting to see what is fixed in 12.1.0.1.  A couple of interesting articles that I found include:

  • Doc ID 10142788.8, Bug 10142788 – Natively compiled PL/SQL in 11.2.0.2 can result in ora-04030: out of process memory
