Huge number of security updates everywhere

Recommended Posts

It seems a lot of companies discovered a lot of vulnerabilities recently...

 

Oracle Patch Tuesday heads-up: 81 database security holes (ZDNet)

Including a fix for a no-authentification-required, remotely exploitable flaw.

 

Microsoft planning Patch Tuesday whopper: 16 bulletins, 49 vulnerabilities (ZDNet)

New Highscore! Windows 7 is concerned by nine updates (!)

 

Adobe ships another mega-patch for PDF Reader (ZDNet)

Adobe fixes huge flaws in Reader. Again.

 

Java mega-update plugs 29 critical security holes (ZDNet)

All but one of those are remotely explotable without authentification. In other words, if a hacker knows you have an out-of-date Java version installed, he can take complete control of your computer without any action on your side.

Better: Since Apple usually delays Java updates for months (they are maintaining Java for Mac) all OS X computers are vulnerable.

If patches have holes, what good are patches? :P

come'on son. do I even have to say anything. Seriously Developers are not gods that make mistakes patches fix them. . . don't feel like arguing so I'ma lock this thread.

 

Aethec, thank you for your post, it actually caught me up with JAVA even before Secunia PSI did.

If you, Aethec, would like me to reopen the thread drop me a line and I'll absolutly do it for you.
