Amichai Schulman has started a database security blog

Amichai, who is the CTO of Imperva and also the head of the ADC (Application Defence Center), impervas research arm has started a new database security weblog. He will of course cover Oracle security from time to time as well as general database security issues. The blog is called "Imperva Application Defense Center (ADC)" and is hosted at typepad. The feed has been added to my Oracle blogs aggregator. The blog so far has some good posts. The most recent "What's the color of hacking?" is very good and talks about how javascript can be used to steal browser history. I saw Jeremiah Grossman speak about this at BlackHat in Las Vegas and was impressed at the deviousness of this sort of hack that could be used to tunnel into an organisation via an unspecting employees browser.

Some good posts Amichai.
