Oracle researcher announces high-risk database flaws

Shawna McAlearney the news editor at has written an article today titled "Oracle researcher announces high-risk database flaws" where she has interviewed Alex Kornbrust. Shawna talks with Alex about his decision to release the advisories and also about it not being just his issue. He cites similar problems with other researchers. Shawna finishes with a quote from Alex:

"Customers should also ask Oracle why does it take so long to fix security issues," Kornbrust concluded. "Is Oracle's security team too small to handle all these issues?"

This is a nice interview from Shawna.
