Oracle have announced they are to release 147 security patches, including 36 for Java – their biggest security patch batch release in a long time.

These include five for Oracle Database and 18 for MySQL. Others for Fusion, Solaris, PeopleSoft and OVM.

Enterprises that rely on Oracle software are used to a regular stream of security patching as part of their monthly or quarterly maintenance regimes.
