July, 2016: Patch Monday: July Oracle CPU is Here

Welcome to the July Patch Monday Bulletin. This month delivers patches for Flash, Acrobat, Reader, XMP Tool Kit, Safari, iTunes, Chrome and Java. First up this month is Adobe Flash followed by Adobe Reader/Acrobat. Both of these applications are highly targeted and remediate potentially exploitable arbitrary code execution vulnerabilities. Applying these patches will remediate 82 vulnerabilities. Next, look at applying patches for Java. Java is a historically targeted application but there is relatively little known about the types of vulnerabilities affecting it at the moment. Test and apply the Chrome and Safari patches if these browsers are used throughout the environment. Finally, look for and patch iTunes in your environment. iTunes is not a typical corporate application but end users with admin rights may have installed it. It is important to inventory applications within your environment so that there is adequate patch coverage. For example, iTunes may not be an application that is deployed by default but it has the potential to be exploited if end users install it.
