So what happened to the Week of Oracle Database Bugs" (WoODB)?
Looks like it got pull off?  Legal threat from Oracle's legal department?
Did not see any announcement on this list.


The Week of Oracle Database Bugs 

We are sad to announce that due to many problems the Week of Oracle Database Bugs gets suspended. 

We would like to ask for apologizes to people who supported this and were really excited with the idea, also we would 
like to thank the people who contributed with Oracle vulnerabilities.

The Week of Oracle Database Bugs 
Based on the great idea of H D Moore "Month of Browser
Bugs" and LMH "Month of Kernel Bugs", we are proud to
announce that we are starting on December the "Week of
Oracle Database Bugs" (WoODB). 

What is the WoODB about? 
An Oracle Database 0day will be released every day for
a week on December. 

Why are you doing this? 
We want to show the current state of Oracle software
("in")security also we want to demostrate Oracle isn't
getting any better at securing its products (you
already know the history: two years or more to fix a
bug, not fixing bugs, failing to fix bugs, lying about
security efforts, etc, etc, etc.). 

Why are you targeting only Oracle? 
We have 0days for all Database software vendors but
Oracle is "The #1 Star" when talking about lots of
unpatched vulnerabilities and not caring about

Why not the Month of Oracle Database Bugs?
We could do the Year of Oracle Database Bugs but we
think a week is enough to show how flawed Oracle
software is, also we don't want to give away all our
0days:), anyways if you want to contribute send your
Oracle 0days so this can be extended for another week
or more.
