Oracle Security Alert for CVE-2014-7169

Security Alert  CVE-2014-7169 addresses a publicly disclosed vulnerability affecting GNU Bash. GNU Bash is a popular open source command line shell incorporated into Linux and other widely used operating systems. This vulnerability affects multiple Oracle products. This vulnerability may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e. it may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password. A remote user can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on systems that are running affected versions of Bash. 

Oracle is still investigating this issue and will provide fixes for affected products as soon as they have been fully tested and determined to provide effective mitigation against the vulnerability. 
The fixes that are available for immediate application by customers are listed in the Patch Availability Table. This Security Alert will be updated when fixes are available for additional affected Oracle products without sending additional emails to customers. Customers should check this page for updates.
Due to the severity, public disclosure, and reports of active exploitation of CVE-2014-7169, Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply the fixes provided by this Security Alert as soon as they are released by Oracle.

Mark Hurd’s Latest Blog: Why IT Complexity Kills Business Innovation
 In this new blog, Mark writes, “Information Technology today touches every facet of business in ways that traditional enterprise technology never did. As a result, chief executives are demanding a lot more from IT than they’ve been getting. CEOs need IT to help lead the way to transformational change, to help keep up with customer demands for faster, more responsive engagement, to help gain market share, and to help prevent disruption by more nimble competitors.”
Read the blog to find out why Mark says this is where cloud, big data, and engineered systems come into play.
