    The January CPU addressed seven vulnerabilities in the Oracle Database Server, three for the Oracle GoldenGate component, eight in Oracle Java SE, and 22 in Oracle MySQL. The update also closed nine issues in Oracle Virtualization and 23 in Oracle Sun Systems Product Suite, which includes Solaris.
