Oracle will join Microsoft on next week’s Patch Tuesday freight train and it will be another mega-release.

The database server giant says in a pre-release announcement that it will patch a whopping 81 vulnerabilities, some serious enough to be remotely exploitable without authentication (over a network without the need for a username and password). 

The company said that 31 out of 81 vulnerabilities are in the Oracle Sun Products Suite.

This Oracle patch batch will be released on October 12, 2010.

More information on the affected products and components available in this notification from Oracle.
