The Register talks about the bugs

Robert Lemos of Security focus has an interesting angle in his news article "Oracle taken to task for time to fix vulnerabilities". In this article a detailed discussion of Alex's advisories takes place along with some insight into the length of time taken and also a quote from an Oracle source.
