Larry Elisson has allways had a big mouth (like Steve Jobs)and somehow he has proven himself many times.

The problem is, now that he has claimed that, hackers are gonna be trying to break in all the time, and sooner or later, a weakness is going to be found.

it is a unwritten rule that there are ALWAYS holes in any kind of security...
If not it will be useless software... since it won't do what it is supposed to...

But I think the real ponit is.. CEO's claim **** like that all the time..
Remember Bill gates claiming an increase in speed....
Less reboots per hour and stuff like that....
I crash XP on a daily bases.... And it's not even my fault...

hehehe telling the public "we are invincible or unbreakabe and asking hackers to try to hack them" is like saying " hey every one, i have a g-string, **** me up my arse if u can!"

I think since then, his systems have been hacked thousands of times. He probably just paid them off to keep their mouths shut. It's really not wise to claim the impossible...

i agree. you can't promise customers (or at least, shouldn't) something that your company can't offer. There's not a computer that is 100% "unhackable" and claiming that a particular piece of software actualy is just encourages people to do so.
