Java vulnerabilities again and
“Oracle Database Server, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle PeopleSoft Products, Oracle Siebel CRM, Oracle and Sun Systems Products Suite, Oracle Virtualization and Oracle MySQL all need security fixes for one reason or another. Many of the patched vulns allow attackers to gain remote unauthenticated access to marks’ networks.”
So, the next time someone tells me I must use Oracle DB or Java because it’s “state of the art” or “everybody who’s anybody uses it”, I will just run away laughing. Users pay for price/performance. Oracle seems to have lots of price but a lot less performance than some folks think. Performance includes security IMHO. Without it pretty much nothing else matters much. 27-1 patches, many of them for fatal flaws… I do have some Java applications on my systems but at least the plugin is disabled in the browsers.
