Oracle has patched over 50 flaws in its software products in its latest critical patch update (CPU).

The release includes 26 fixes for vulnerabilities connected to its database software, ten of which could be exploited remotely without authentication, meaning an attacker would not need a username or password to exploit them.

Of the rest, 12 are related to flaws in its Application Server, seven to E-Business Suite, six to Enterprise Manager and three to PeopleSoft.

For the first time, Oracle provided advance notice of the patch release, issuing a pre-alert earlier this month. The security update contained one less patch than expected, with 26 fixes for its database products instead of the 27 anticipated.

"An issue was detected with one of the database fixes for a number of database versions," Eric Maurice, manager for security at Oracle, said in a blog.
