Researchers offer tool for breaking into Oracle databases

Just saw this on Builder AU. Some useful tools for security auditing me thinks:
During their presentation at the Black Hat and Defcon hacker conferences next week in Las Vegas, security experts will release a tool that can be used to break into Oracle databases.

Chris Gates and Mario Ceballos will present Oracle Pentesting Methodology and give out "all the tools to break the 'unbreakable' Oracle as Metasploit auxiliary modules," according to a summary of their presentation on the Defcon Web site.
