Identify Oracle October CPU Candidates with Tideway Foundation
On 20th October Oracle released its latest critical patch update (CPU). Looking at the list of products requiring the CPU it is clear that Tideway Foundation patterns provide the level of precision (5 digit version identification) needed to help organizations quickly identify instances requiring the patch.
Oracle recommend that organizations “have a complete inventory of Oracle products across the IT enterprise, with full version numbers” however do not appear to have a solution for this. As a result we hear that many organizations are unable to apply the CPUs and as a result are exposing themselves to critical security vulnerabilities.
