Howard Rogers has started a new Oracle forum

I saw in the last few days that Howard Rogers has started a new Oracle forum. I have not joined yet but will do so to keep an eye on what’s going on there and to try and contribute. There seems to be a few Oracle security related posts already in there that took my eye and the quality of postings seems not bad. The posts that caught my eye are "Username=Password", "password", "Granting rights to user connecting through a dblink", "sql-injection in insert statement" and "Secure Application Roles".

Keep an eye on Howard’s forum, looks like its worth a visit now and then to see what’s been posted or I would definitely recommend joining and taking part as the discussions seem technical and friendly enough.
