#631 Oracle fixes 136 vulnerabilities with April critical patch update
Oracle fixed 136 vulnerabilities across 46 different products this week as part of its quarterly Critical Patch Update. More than half of the CVEs, 72, could be remotely exploitable without authentication.

Fixes for a slew of products, including Oracle’s Database Server, E-Business Suite, Fusion Middleware, along with its Sun Products line, Java SE platform, and MySQL database, were pushed on Tuesday. The update is the company’s second batch of patches for 2016 and as far as the number of fixes goes, is much more in line with Oracle’s traditional patch updates compared to January’s mammoth CPU which was record-setting and addressed 248 patches.
