Practical 10 Minutes Security Audit: Oracle Case
by Cesar Cerrudo - Founder and CEO of Argeniss - Wednesday, 5 September 2007.
This paper will show an extremely simple technique to quickly audit a software product in order to infer how trustworthy and secure it is. It will show you step by step how to identify half dozen of local 0day vulnerabilities in few minutes just making a couple of clicks on very easy to use free tools, then for the technical guys enjoyment the vulnerabilities will be easily pointed out on disassembled code and detailed, finally a 0day exploit for one of the vulnerabilities will be demonstrated.

While this technique can be applied to any software in this case I will take a look at the latest version of Oracle Database Server: 10gR2 for Windows, which is a extremely secure product so it will be a very difficult challenge to find vulnerabilities since Oracle is using advanced next generation tools to identify and fix vulnerabilities.
