Michael Singer of Intenet News talks about Oracles new patch schedule

Internet news have issued an interesting report about the new Oracle quarterly patch schedule. This is a good article discussing most of the salient points of the last three months since the release of the first patch of the so called monthly patch schedule. The news item talked about the news release yesterday and also Mary Ann Davidsons proposed conference call to field questions about the announcement. Michael had also spoken to the two Gartner analysts who produced the critical report about Oracles security releases a week or so ago. Michael also reiterates the issues of lack of details about the vulnerabilities fixed in the patches and how this is affecting customers and especially customers with older un-supported versions of Oracle. Again the article is here.
