Researchers deliver fix for Java 0-day to Oracle
Taking into consideration that the Oracle Critical Patch Updates goes through an extensive integration testing with other products such as JRockit, Weblogic Server, and E-Business Suite, Gowdiak and his team tried to conduct a "small Vulnerability Fix Experiment".
They discovered that the fix can be implemented within half an hour time, that only 25 characters in the source code needed to be changed in order to implement it, and that the fix does not seem to require any integration tests with other Oracle application software, as the code logic had not been changed at all and would not influence 3rd party applications.
