Thanks, David, for your always enlightening (and depressing if you use Oracle products) reports on the unbreakable database.

Hey all,
I've just posted an analysis of the 22 Oracle RDBMS flaws patched by the
October 2006 Critical Patch Update that was released yesterday:

puoct2006.html.  Further, it's a shame to see that, after a promising
July 2006 CPU where  Oracle had all the patches ready *on time*, they
have slipped back into  their old, bad habits - patches are not ready for
a number of platforms. I  thought they'd solved those issues - but
clearly not. You can get a copy of  the analysis from
