: In the past, Oracle has been criticized for its lackadaisical approach 
: to addressing critical security flaws. At the Black Hat security 
: conference in Las Vegas last year, NGS Software pushed the envelope by 
: releasing details on more than two dozen security holes in Oracle 
: products that had not been fixed.
: 
: At the time, NGS Software said Oracle was aware of the vulnerabilities - 
: some of them critical - for several months.

Several months? From this round of patches..

Oracle Corp. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Larry Ellison said
