Oracle has published a scheduled release of its Critical Patch Update, aimed at resolving critical issues and vulnerabilities. In the January update, a total of 334 vulnerabilities were eliminated.

Java SE 13.0.2, 11.0.6, and 8u241 have fixed 12 security issues. All vulnerabilities can be exploited remotely without authentication. The highest level of danger is 8.1, which is assigned to the serialization problem, which allows compromising Java SE applications by transmitting specially designed serialized data. Three vulnerabilities have a severity rating of 7.5. These problems are present in JavaFX and are caused by vulnerabilities in SQLite and libxslt.

In addition to problems in Java SE, vulnerabilities have been disclosed in other Oracle products, including:

  • 12 vulnerabilities in the MySQL server and 3 vulnerabilities in the implementation of the MySQL client (C API). The highest danger level 6.5 is assigned to three problems in the MySQL parser and optimizer. Issues resolved in MySQL Community Server 8.0.19, 5.7.29, and 5.6.47 releases.
  • 18 vulnerabilities in VirtualBox, of which 6 are of high severity (CVSS Score 8.2 and 7.5). Vulnerabilities will be fixed in VirtualBox 6.1.2, 6.0.16 and 5.2.36 updates, which are expected today.
  • 10 vulnerabilities in Solaris. The maximum severity rating of 8.8 is a locally exploited issue in the Common Desktop Environment. Of the problems with a severity rating of above 7, local vulnerabilities in the Consolidation Infrastructure and the file system can also be noted. Issues resolved in yesterday's Solaris 11.4 SRU 17 update.
