XXXXXXXXX Security Advisory
Vulnerabilities in Oracle E-Business Suite 11i Oracle
Critical Patch Update - October 2005 October 18, 2005
Oracle today released its fourth Critical Patch Update
(October 2005). The
patches contained in the Critical Patch Update will correct
numerous security bugs in the Oracle Database, Oracle
Application Server, and Oracle E-Business Suite. Some of the
vulnerabilities in the Critical Patch Update are high risk
and a few can be exploited remotely using a web browser.
Almost all the security bugs fixed in this Critical Patch
Update are exploitable in Oracle E-Business Suite
environments and the appropriate patches should be applied as
soon as possible. Patches for the Oracle Database, Oracle
Application Server, Oracle Developer 6i, and Oracle
E-Business Suite 11i must be applied -- almost all
implementations will have to apply at least 12 patches.
Customers with Internet-facing implementations of the Oracle
E-Business Suite are at most risk and should consider
applying these patches quickly.
The Oracle E-Business Suite patches involved with this
Critical Patch Update are much more complex as compared to
the previous CPUs and will require additional functional
testing in our opinion. In addition, the Oracle E-Business
Suite security patches are not cumulative, therefore, all the
patches specified in this CPU and previous CPUs must be applied.
XXXXXXXXX has released additional guidance to help our
clients in determining the relevance and priority of these
patches for their Oracle E-Business Suite implementations.
The XXXXXXXXX analysis for the this Critical Patch Update is

I think this is very bad advisory. There is no detail and I was
watching for company name 12 times. Stephen Kost is only get credit
as "Some of the vulnerabilities fixed in the Critical Patch Update
October 2005 were discovered and reported to Oracle by Stephen Kost
of XXXXXXXXX Corporation" I think Stephen Kost should discover
better company for security working. This company contributes
nothing to discussion. Thank you but no advertisement on
