WHAT HAPPENED?
Oracle released their January 2016 Critical Patch Update to multiple security vulnerabilities in various Oracle products.

Oracle continues to periodically receive reports of attempts to maliciously exploit vulnerabilities for which Oracle has already released fixes. In some instances, it has been reported that attackers have been successful because targeted customers had failed to apply available Oracle patches.

Oracle therefore strongly recommends that customers remain on actively-supported versions and apply Critical Patch Update fixes without delay.
