include the execution of arbitrary code or commands, information
disclosure, and denial of service. Vulnerable components are likely to
be available to attackers via remote networks and with limited or no
prior authorization. An attacker who compromises an Oracle database
may be able to gain access to sensitive information.
Apply a patch
Apply the appropriate patches or upgrade as specified in the Oracle
Critical Patch Update - January 2006. Note that this Critical Patch
Update only lists newly corrected issues. Updates to patches for
previously known issues are not listed.
As noted in the update, some patches are cumulative, others are not:
