[Full-disclosure] Oracle E-Business Suite Vulnerability Information April 2007

Integrigy has released additional information on the Oracle E-Business Suite
11i and R12 security vulnerabilities in the April 2007 Oracle Critical Patch
Update. This analysis includes details (type, impact, etc.) regarding the
vulnerabilities, a review of the required patches, and advice on applying
the 6-10 required patches in a timely manner.

security patches. Oracle's policy is simple - Oracle only supports the 2
most recent patch sets that have been released in the past 12 months for the
Oracle Database and Oracle Application Server. There are some exceptions to
policy based on operating system support and other product dependencies. To
highlight the differences between certified versions and versions supported
in the April 2007 CPU we have released the following -
