Oracle is to release a security bundle for its enterprise applications and platforms on 12 October addressing 81 flaws.
Among the products being updated are Oracle Database, PeopleSoft CRM, E-Business Suite and Fusion Middleware. The update will affect hundreds of Oracle and Sun Microsystems offerings.
A total of 31 of the 81 fixes are for Sun products, 11 of which address flaws which could be used by an attacker to remotely access a targeted system. Five of the updates also address flaws in Sun's Open Office productivity suite.
The planned Oracle patch comes one day after Microsoft gave word of its largest monthly patch yet. Like the Oracle update, Microsoft is planning to release its October security update on Tuesday.
