That's a very common place for cracks to run through. The 3rd 8ve, both trill and the LH1 (C#) toneholes will all need to be cut out and bushed with plastic or ebonite, the cracks will be filled in and either pinned (steel or carbon fibre pins) or carbon fibre banded.

Only trust that sort of crack repair work to an oboe specialist as they'd be tooled up and experienced to deal with this work. Don't worry as this is a fairly routine repair and cracks are more of an inconvenience and not terminal - they can happen at any point in time to anyone.

It's much better to repair a cracked top joint than replacing it with a new one and chances are the oboe will play much better after it's cracked and been repaired, so long as the repair was successful.

In the meantime, don't use anything to seal or cover the cracks (eg. tape, grease or wax) as that can contaminate things which will cause the repair to fail.
