Oracle will release 46 patches on Tuesday for products including its Oracle Database 10g, Application Server and E-Business Suite.

Oracle Database will have 20 fixes, two of which patch vulnerabilities that could allow remote execution of code on the network without authentication. The most serious of the database vulnerabilities is ranked "medium" in severity, according to the Common Vulnerability Scoring System.

The E-Business Suite will receive 14 patches, also for vulnerabilities that could be exploited over a network without a username and password. Three of the four patches for Oracle's Application Server fix problems that could also be exploited remotely.

The remaining patches are for Oracle's Collaboration Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise PeopleTools, PeopleSoft Enterprise Customer Relationship Management and PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management.

The fixes, along with the product versions affected, are listed in an Oracle advisory.

Oracle released 36 patches in April, its previous round of software fixes, but was criticised for making Windows users wait for one of those patches.
