Oracle's correction to the April CPU patch email has been posted to Bugtraq

I saw a post to the Bugtraq mailing list this evening that attracted my interest. The post is titled "Critical Patch Update April 2005 for Database 9.2 and 10.1 Update - Correction". I talked about this issue yesterday in a post titled "More problems with the April Critical Patch Update - does it ever stop?".

The post to Bugtraq is the email that was sent out to all Oracle customers who had previously received the email on July 6 or 7 stating that the April CPU patch set had problems. This email as you will read corrects the problems with the fix in the July 6 / 7 email.
