Oracle to Patch 24 Security Flaws

Database server giant oracle is joining Microsoft and Adobe this patch Tuesday

Ten of the patches affect Oracle's database, and two of the vulnerabilities addressed can be remotely exploited over a network without the need for a username and password, Oracle said.
Affected database components include Application Express Application Builder, Listener, Data Pump, OLAP, Secure Backup, Spatial and Universal Installer. Both 11g and 10g database releases are affected.
The update also includes three fixes for Oracle's application server. All three address vulnerabilities that can be exploited without a username or password. They affect the server's Access Manager Identity Server and Oracle Containers for J2EE components.
