Gartner warns on Oracle security

Analyst group Gartner has warned administrators to be "more aggressive" when protecting their Oracle applications because they are not getting enough help from the database giant.

Gartner published an advisory on its Web site just days after Oracle's latest quarterly patch cycle, which included a total of 103 fixes with 37 related to flaws in the company's database products. Some of the flaws carry Oracle's most serious rating, which means they're easy to exploit and an attack can have a wide impact.

According to the advisory, which was posted by Gartner analyst Rich Mogull on Monday, "the range and seriousness of the vulnerabilities patched in this update cause us great concern. Oracle has not yet experienced a mass security exploit, but this does not mean that one will never occur."
