Oracle exec hits out at 'patch' mentality

May 31st, 2006 by Pete


Oracle exec hits out at 'patch' mentality - By Colin Barker and Jonathan Bennett

"Oracle's security chief says the software industry is so riddled with buggy product makers that "you wouldn't get on a plane built by software developers."

Chief Security Officer Mary Ann Davidson has hit out at an industry in which "most software people are not trained to think in terms of safety, security and reliability." Instead, they are wedded to a culture of "patch, patch, patch," at a cost to businesses of $59 billion, she said."
