Study: Oracle database software has more flaws than SQL Server

Micro$oft is often unfairly slammed for security issues, says NGSS
Time to change gears for oracle. As usual the biggest threat in the IT market is striking on Oracle too. And it is not Micro$oft who is saying this but its the survey!

A comparison of vulnerabilities in Microsoft's SQL Server database and Oracle's relational database management (RDBM) products by U.K.-based Next Generation Security Software (NGSS) shows the latter's products to have far more vulnerabilities than do products from Microsoft.
Between December 2000 and November 2006, external researchers discovered 233 vulnerabilities in Oracle's products compared to 59 in Microsoft's SQL Server technology, according to NGSS. The study looked at vulnerabilities that were reported and fixed in SQL Server 7, 2000 and 2005 and Oracle's database versions 8, 9, and 10g.
