The next Critical Patch Update is due tomorrow - 12 July

The time has come around again for the next scheduled patch update from Oracle to be released tomorrow. This will be CPU 12 July. What will be in it? - Only Oracle know that for sure. I am aware of some fixes included as the finders of them have told me. Let's hope that the testing phase has learned lessons from the recent issues (Oracle have issued an email alert that CPU April 2005 is vulnerable to exploit, Oracle have issued a second email with another exploitable vulnerability in in CPU 12APR) advised to Oracle customers via email.

Watch out for the Critical Patch Update - July 2005, it should be out tomorrow.
