Alex has a new presentation on hardening Oracle client PC's

I got an email from my good friend Alex Kornbrust a day or so ago to tell me a few bits of news (more on the other news tomorrow..:-) ). He also sent me an English version of the presentation that he has just made on Friday about hardening DBA workstations. This is an excellent presentation and covers some very interesting ground. One area of his presentation I want talk about again tomorrow in more details as it is something I have also looked into and written about in the past. Alex has updated his "Whitepaper and Presentations" page to include a German and English versions of this presentation. The English version is titled "Hardening Oracle DBA Workstations" and the German one "Absicherung von Oracle Administrations- bzw Entwicklerarbeitsplatzen" - sorry the umlaut character is written as "a" here.
