As a company, Onapsis is focused on the security of business-critical applications such as SAP and Oracle. While our focus is on SAP applications, we have been doing research on Oracle business applications as well to identify and report critical vulnerabilities. In this sense, Oracle is different from SAP in regards to the method and timing that security patches are released and available to end users.
In previous posts we performed security assessments on the Management Console.
For the upcoming assessments we will need a tool to connect with the underlying databases. SQL*Plus is an Oracle utility with a basic command-line interface which allows us to connect with Oracle databases and execute queries in a simple fashion.
