computerworld have also picked up the patch quickly story

It seems that the email last week from Oracle to advise customers that there are now public exploits available for some of the bugs fixed in the alert #68 patch set is gathering momentum. This morning this story was presented to me when i searched on google for an Oracle security related subject. The story was posted yesterday (October 15) by Paul Roberts. Again the authors say they have tried to get a response from Oracle on the subject.

Again there is no excuse now to not applying these patches, the risk is real.
