Oracle-Sun: Latest 10-Q SEC Filing by Sun Notes "Potential Violations"

On page 40 of its latest 10-Q filing with the SEC, Sun notes that it may have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The Wall Street Journal, which broke the story, quotes a lawyer who specializes in this sort of thing as saying that potential violations are usually uncovered when companies are doing due diligence ahead of an acquisition. So that suggests that it could have surfaced during IBM’s due diligence since, as far as anyone knows, Oracle never did any due diligence on Sun. The filing doesn't specify when the “potential violations” happened or over how long a period of time they occurred, merely that during fiscal 2009, which started last July, Sun “identified activities in a certain foreign country that may have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).” The filing says Sun “initiated an independent investigation with the assistance of outside...

Oracle Snaps Up Sun, Gains Control of Java

In a brilliant retrieve from the really nasty situation it was in after its deal to get bought by IBM fell apart, Sun surprised everybody who thought it had no options left – which was practically everybody – by turning up this morning with a deal to get bought by Oracle, Sun’s sometimes best friend. Oracle, Silicon Valley’s avaricious maw, agreed over the weekend to buy Sun for $9.50 a share, a total of $7.4 billion or $5.6 billion less Sun’s cash and debt. un chairman Scott McNealy called the marriage of the “two titans” a “momentous day” that “refines the industry.” The Sun deal is not as big as Oracle’s acquisition of PeopleSoft, BEA or Siebel but gives Sun a 42% premium to last Friday’s $6.69 close. The money is a bit sweeter than the $9.40 a share IBM had reportedly ultimately offered, but failed to reach the $10.50 neighborhood where IBM and Sun supposedly ... (more)

Explain to Me Why Stuff Like This is Even Vaguely Legal

Hackers have developed an automated, easy-to-use tool to break into Oracle databases that's going to be unveiled at the annual Black Hat conference in Las Vegas in a few days. Supposedly it's for simulating attacks on computer systems but it will also be available to prying employees looking to upgrade their pay packets, amateur hackers with time on their hands and plain old-fashioned cyber crooks. According to Reuters, it was developed using the open source Metasploit Project, which has already released some of the most technically sophisticated exploits to public security vulnerabilities. Oracle has reportedly issued defensive patches, but that doesn't mean they're installed. While there are Metasploit hacks for Windows, Firefox and IE, the wire service says this is the first Metasploit program to target Oracle. There have been other ways to hack Oracle, but this ...

Oracle Disaster Recovery Site Hosted by Amazon Cloud

DR sites are typically built as an exact replica of the primary site. Application and database software is installed on DR site and sits there mostly unused, waiting for a disaster to happen. DR site is very expensive proposition than only large companies are able to afford. Amazon AWS is an interesting alternative to having your own DR site. Oracle databases on the DR side are in Data Guard configuration with a primary site and actively apply archive log files shipped from there. Pay per use, scalable Amazon Cloud model makes it an attractive alternative to creating and maintaining your own DR site. Operational expenses on DR site can be lowered by using AWS reserved instances. Reserved instances are cheaper from on-demand ( regular ) instances, but  you have to  commit to, or book an instance for certain duration of time ( minimum term is one year ), and you are ...
