Hacking Oracle made easy

Chris Gates will release and demonstrate a new version of metaploit at Black Hat to show how Oracle can be attacked and hacked remotely. The presentation will be followed by the release of this version of Metasploit. Chris Gates demonstrated some of the ideas in February and - (broken link) he posted a video about this at that time - i mentioned it here at the time also.

The tool automates the attack against Oracle by first brute forcing/guessing the SID, then username/password and then by running various exploits.

There is a nice article also on Reuters talking about the presentation called "Hacking Oracle's database will soon get easier"

Thanks for your comment Chris; yes i appreciated that it was new auxiliary modules; my words were really meant to convey that you are releasing the modules and it sounded easier to say its a new version, so that readers appreciate the specific new modules and the specific target that is relevant here.

Thanks Chris
