Single Sign-On Security Issue in Patchset

18 11 2010

November 18, 2010

I just browsed though Metalink (MOS) to see which operating system platforms are currently supported for Oracle Database  I noticed that the patchset for 64 bit Linux was updated yesterday, and more digging revealed that all of the 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, spend a little time reading on Metalink – it is interesting to see what is fixed in  A couple of interesting articles that I found include:
