Oracle database administrators who are worried they might have to skip 
Oracle's user conference next month to fiddle with security updates can 
relax. Oracle is cutting them a break and releasing its next set of 
patches a week later than planned.

The updates, which are released on a set schedule every three months, 
had been due for release on Oct. 13, slap in the middle of Oracle's 
OpenWorld conference in San Francisco. But after thinking things over, 
Oracle has decided to delay the patches. They're now due on Oct. 20.

Oracle announced the change Thursday on its Web site, saying it was 
moving the patches back because "many Oracle customers with 
responsibility for deploying the Critical Patch Update within their

information, detailing which products will be affected by the updates, a 
week later than expected too. It's due on Oct. 15.
