Oracle fixes 144 bugs including 36 Java flaws

Oracle has issued its first patch update of 2014 on Tuesday and it just so happens that it has been one of its biggest ever that includes a slew of security patches, many of which address vulnerabilities in Java. The Critical Patch Update will address 144 flaws in hundreds of Oracle products, 36 of which apply to vulnerabilities in Java SE, including 34 that are bugs that can be exploited remotely by an attacker without requiring authentication. "Some of the vulnerabilities addressed in this Critical Patch Update affect multiple products", Oracle said in its pre-release announcement. "Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply Critical Patch Update fixes as soon as possible." <more>
