Oracle has patched more than 60 security vulnerabilities in its software products as part of a quarterly patching cycle.

Oracle has patched more than 60 security vulnerabilities in its software products as part of a quarterly patching cycle.

Around 30 of the bugs could be used by remote attackers to exploit a user’s system, Oracle said. No workarounds for the security holes exist and the company has urged users to patch their systems as soon as possible.

The July critical patch update tackles 23 flaws in Oracle's databases, one for its Collaboration Suite, and 10 in Oracle Application Server.

There are 20 fixes related to Oracle’s E-Business Suite and Applications, four for Enterprise Manager, two for the PeopleSoft Enterprise portal, and one for JD Edwards software.

The patch bundle also includes fixes for four security vulnerabilities in client software that works with the Oracle database. This means users have to patch desktops as well as servers for complete security.

Previous Oracle security updates have required server updates only.
