Oracle admins are today staring down the barrel of the biggest quarterly Critical Patch Update ever.
The numbers are gory: 308 vulnerabilities patched, 165 of which are remotely exploitable, across more than 90 products. So far in 2017, Oracle has patched 878 vulnerabilities through three CPUs.
System and network admins have never been taxed from a patching perspective as they have this year. On the Windows side, Microsoft has overhauled its security bulletins, replacing them with cumbersome Security Update Guides.
