Oracle October CPU pre-release analysis

October 13th, 2007 by Pete

I saw yesterday that Steve Kost had put up a pre-analysis of the October CPU. This is a useful read and the page is titled "Critical Patch Update October 2007 Pre-Release Analysis". The most interesting thing to watch for are the 5 database remotely exploitable without authentication bugs / fixes. These should make the patch be mandatory to apply quickly.

Bad, bad English... sorry.
I mean, in CPU July 2007 was a bug, that was describing in your blog “07/24/2007: "First exploit released for CPU July 2007". End my question is: in October CPU this bug is fixed, or not?
I have not test environment and can’t test it. In product environment CPU may be applied for month or later.

Thanks for your further reply, i now understand your question. The short answer is that i don't know as I don't work in Oracle so don't have the inside track on whats exactly fixed. I would hope that the fix is included though.
