Avira fixed Oracle security hole in Avira Exchange

Several days ago Oracle closed some security holes. However, this affects also Avira AntiVir Exchange, because our product also uses Oracle's Outside In library. Avira already fixed this and provide a new package which can be downloaded on our website.

To close this security hole, we recommend to install this package as soon as possible. To do so, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the latest package from our website.
  2. Start the setup.
  3. Run the update.

It might be possible that a restart of your system is necessary, depending on your system settings.

In case you cannot do a system restart right now, you can alternatively deactivate the job "Wall Content Filtering" to be protected nevertheless.
