Oracle on Tuesday released its latest quarterly patch update, which 
includes 10 security fixes for its database and also addresses a range 
of vulnerabilities across the vendor's applications portfolio.

Among the 10 database vulnerabilites, three can be exploited across a 
network without a user name or password. Affected database components 
include advanced replication, network authentication, Secure Enterprise 
Search and configuration management, Oracle said.

Two other patches are for Oracle Application Server weaknesses that can 
also be exploited remotely without authentication, Oracle said.

Another group of fixes addresses issues with Oracle E-Business Suite 
components, including Advanced Supply Chain Planning, Oracle 
Applications Framework, iStore and iSupplier Portal.

In addition, Oracle is shipping a total of four fixes for its PeopleSoft 
Enterprise, JD Edwards Enterprise One and Siebel application families, 
two patches for Oracle Secure Backup, and two for Enterprise Manager.
