Oracle remids all customers to apply Patches for alert #68

As a customer of Oracle I received an email from Oracle support last night 22:55 GMT. This email is entitled "Reminder:Oracle security alert 68" and advises those customers who have not yet done so to apply the patches noted in the Alert 68 MetaLink Document ID 281188.1. The other main point to the email is that the Oracle are now aware of public exploits available for some of the vulnerabilities fixed with the patch. Some of the issues are critical and should be patched immediately. The alert documentation was last updated on 24th September. There is also a FAQ document - ID 282108.1 that will be of use to people.

Apply the patches if you have not done so already!
