If you conducted an import or export of an Oracle10g Release 2 or 11g Release 1 database prior to September 11, 2009, you should follow the instructions in My Oracle Support Knowledge Document
1055539.1 to verify the privileges in your database. This is because a missing step in several OracleMetaLink notes published before 11 September 2009 means that target instance schemas created by following the instructions in them may have an additional privilege that was not present in the source instance, and which may therefore need to be removed. See Knowledge Document 985520.1 for full Critical Patch Update Information.

The Critical Patch Update (CPU) for January 2010 was released on January 12, 2009. Oracle strongly recommends applying the patches as soon as possible.

The Critical Patch Update Advisory is the starting point for relevant information. It includes a list of products affected, pointers to obtain the patches, a summary of the security vulnerabilities, and links to other important documents.

Supported Products that are not listed in the “Supported Products and Components Affected” Section of the advisory do not require new patches to be applied.

Also, it is essential to review the Critical Patch Update supporting documentation referenced in the Advisory before applying patches, as this is where you can find important pertinent information.

The Critical Patch Update Advisory is available at the following location: Oracle Technology Network

The next four Critical Patch Update release dates are:
” April 13, 2010
” July 13, 2010
” October 12, 2010
” January 18, 2011
