Oracle Releases 299 Patches Including Fixes for NSA Cyber Tools

Software vulnerability

Oracle’s April security update featured 299 fixes for multiple products the company encourages users to apply “without delay.”

The long list includes patches for alleged National Security Agency hacking tools leaked by the Shadow Brokers group. Oracle offered a fix for the Solaris 10 operating system and said version 11 was unaffected by the leaked tools, The Register reported. Older versions of Solaris are no longer supported by Oracle, and the update urged users to remain on “actively-supported versions.”

Oracle also addressed an Apache Struts vulnerability hackers actively exploited in recent weeks, InfoWorld reported.
