Oracle Security talk available as slides and also video

On Tuesday I did a webinar for Sentrigo on the subject of Oracle Security (of course). This went well and we had quite a good attendance. I started the talk with a ten minute or so demo of hacking an Oracle database to steal credit cards. I wanted to get across the message that hacking Oracle is not about granting DBA to PUBLIC or SCOTT but its about any privilege or access abuse that allows data to be stolen. Unfortunately (for the owners of data) its not rocket science to steal data from an Oracle database.

The slides for the presentation are available on my Oracle Security white papers page.

Also Sentrigo recorded the session as video. This is available from this URL:
