Oracle has released a set of security updates for multiple products and platforms.

The company said that the July update includes 89 fixes for various products throughout its enterprise software lines.

Among the fixes will be six updates for security flaws in Oracle Database. Flaws will also be addressed in the Oracle Net component, which could be remotely exploited without authentication.

The company released updates for more than 20 flaws in its Fusion Middleware platform, including 16 vulnerabilities that would allow for remote exploitation without the need for prior authentication.

Other updates included 16 fixes for vulnerabilities in the oracle Sun product line, including the Solaris, SPARC Enterprise M Server and Solaris Cluster lines.

Other platforms receiving security updates were Hyperion, Enterprise Manager and the Oracle Applications E-Business Suite. The company also issued updates for MySQL Server and the Oracle Linux distribution. The Linux update includes patches to address a pair of remotely exploitable flaws in the Secure Global Desktop component.

The company is advising administrators and users to test and install the patches as soon as possible. Oracle noted that a number of the updates will be cumulative fixes and will address previous critical security flaws that may have been left unpatched.
