Oracle security patches causing headaches

Tuesday, 21 September 2004, 12:02 AM EST

Oracle security expert Arup Nanda said Oracle's latest alert is frustrating to DBAs since very little information was released with each patch. With little information to go on, many enterprises are being forced to take entire systems out of production, Nanda said.

Nanda, a Norwalk, Conn.-based DBA who is president of Proligence, an Oracle consultancy, is co-author of a new book called Oracle Privacy Security Auditing. The book focuses on security and auditing regulations for the health-care industry; these rules are part of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.
