Not again!?! security issues at Oracle

Seems like a story such as this comes out every couple of months.

"Overall, there are 130-140 open security issues if you tally everything found by different researchers," he said. "Oracle's code and product quality is getting better, but they still take way too long to fix vulnerabilities. In my view, a year-old flaw is unacceptable."

Alexander Kornbrust, database security researcher and business director at German firm Red-Database-Security GmbH, has been on their tail for a while now about these flaws. Kornbrust went public last year on several unpatched vulnerabilities after waiting over 700 days for Oracle to do anything about one of the issues.
