As of Oct 15, 2019, the CPU October 2019 Patch Bundles are available for download. So let me do the quarterly exercise to download and install all of them into my

various environments.

Critical Patch Alert October 2019

At first, I check the Alert and the Risk Matrix whether critical issues with a high risk score are included. I will install the patch bundles anyway, but I’m curious. In my particular case I will take care on the database only. You of course will check for other products you are using, too.

The Risk Matrix for the database shows a “relatively” low security risk this time. If you don’t have OJVM in your database, the highest score for the RDBMS is 5.7 but has 3 other 5.0 scores in addition. Hence, I would strongly recommend to apply it.

This is not something you should ignore but the previous July 2019 patch bundles fixed a 9.8 score issue with the database.

Downloading the Patch Bundles

There are two routes to download the correct patches:

These are the ones I will download for my installations (I don’t have OJVM installed anywhere). I’m on Linux-64bit.
