I came across an interesting thread on the ORACLE-L mailing list this morning again related to the new 188.8.131.52 patch set. The first post to the thread by Patrice
updates us that the OTN patch page
still says the latest patch set is 184.108.40.206 for Win32 but metalink has 220.127.116.11 released on 31 Oct. Patrice also updates us that there are still no 18.104.22.168 patch sets for Linux or tru64.
Paul Drake makes a very interesting comment further down the thread
where he says:“Please be aware, that the patchset 22.214.171.124 for win32 is not in itself
a solution for Oracle Security Alert #68, as described in the FAQ and
patch set matrix notes on Metalink. Other one-off patch sets may also need to be applied.”
