Oracle Linux Bulletin - October 2019



The Oracle Linux Bulletin lists all CVEs that had been resolved and announced in Oracle Linux Security Advisories (ELSA) in the last one month prior to the release of the bulletin. Oracle Linux Bulletins are published on the same day as Oracle Critical Patch Updates are released. These bulletins will also be updated for the following two months after their release (i.e., the two months between the normal quarterly Critical Patch Update publication dates) to cover all CVEs that had been resolved in those two months following the bulletin's publication. In addition, Oracle Linux Bulletins may also be updated for vulnerability issues deemed too critical to wait for the next scheduled bulletin publication date.

Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply Oracle Linux Bulletin security patches as soon as possible.
