Oracle is set to deliver 88 security patches in order to fix a number of bugs plaguing its portfolio of products, which it has urged customers to install as quickly as possible.
The fixes will mainly focus on weaknesses in Oracle's Sun product family, including the GlassFish application server and Solaris OS, with the company confirming 25 fixes for the range in a statement on Thursday.
Below it a further 22 patches were confirmed for its Fusion Middleware family. The company confirmed that eight of the vulnerabilities can be remotely exploited without a username or password.
Worryingly, a fix relating to Oracle's Fusion Middleware product JRockit, was given a Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) score of 10.0, the highest on the scale.
CVSS is a scoring system used by several big name companies including McAfee and Qualys to judge the seriousness of vulnerabilities.
Six fixes have also been confirmed for the MySQL database - though the company has promised none of the weaknesses involved can be exploited remotely without credentials - and a further four for its Database products.
Oracle revealed that three of the database vulnerabilities confirmed in the release can be exploited by an attacker over a network without the need for login credentials.
Other confirmed patches included fixes for vulnerabilities in Oracle's Hyperion, Enterprise Manager Grid Control, E-Business Suite, Siebel CRM, PeopleSoft and Oracle Industry Applications.
The patches are expected to arrive on 24 July and Oracle has issued a warning urging customers to upgrade their systems as soon as possible.
