There’s more To Measuring Security than the Number of Vulnerabilities…


Is there really more to measuring security than the number of vulnerabilities? That’s what Oracle and some analysts would like you to believe. Don’t believe me? Read this: http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9005383. Do the number of use-cases (or scenarios), the number of platforms, and the number of versions that are supported really matter when it comes to security? Honestly I don’t think so. This argument would mean that these things are more important than secure code. If this is true, I don’t want my personal data residing in any product from a company that subscribes to this. This type of thinking angers me so much that I better stop before I say something I’ll regret. Seriously, why does any one use Oracle’s products? Do you think your firewall is going to protect you? Right…
