Microsoft and Oracle Prepare Massive Security Updates for Tuesday

Quote:

Following Microsoft's announcement that it is preparing a record number of security fixes for next week, Oracle also revealed plans to release a monster batch of patches.

Three days ago Microsoft announced through its Advance Notification Service that the upcoming "Patch Tuesday" on October 12 will see the release of 16 security bulletins covering a total of 49 vulnerabilities.

This is the largest set of security updates released by Microsoft to date, the previous record being established in August, when the company plugged 34 holes.

The vulnerabilities affect various components in Windows, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office and Sharepoint Server. Many of them allow for remote code execution and are rated critical or important.

In comparison, Oracle's Critical Patch Update for October, which will land on the same day, will address a whooping 81 security issues.
