Flaw hunters pick holes in Oracle patches

October 27th, 2005 by Pete

I found a good article by Joris Evers tonight on ZD Net about Oracle security. Alex also emailed a link to me so its popular!. The article is titled "Flaw hunters pick holes in Oracle patches". It is a four page article and it explores the latest patch from Oracle. David Litchfield has been analysing the patch and has found some holes in it. He is calling for an overhaul of the Oracle patching process. The news item explores the whole process of Oracles patch mechanism and includes comments on both sides of the arguments. It is a very good paper.
