Subject: Oracle Database 9ir2 Interval Conversion Functions Buffer Overflow

Hey Chris.

First of all, your advisories are a bit wrong:
...Systems Affected: 	Oracle 9 prior to 9.2.0.3

Actually Systems affected are Oracle 9 prior to
9.2.0.4 (Patchset 3).

The date in Metalink site of the Patch that fixes
these vulnerabilities is January 2 and your advisories
are from December.

I could be wrong, Oracle patches numeration, dates,
etc. really sucks, but you could be wrong too as the
version of Oracle your advisory said it was affected
:).

The fact is that i contacted Oracle before the fix was
available, they released the fix and they didn't told
me anything, they didn't released any public alert and
your advisory isn't in any public list, it's only on
your site. Finally, given that the date of the patch
that fixes these vulns is January 2, you published the
advisories in your site before the fix was available.
Again i could be wrong.

BTW: i'm curious, Why you didn't posted those
advisories to public mailing lists?
