Submission + - Oracle IP address = 9th in world for ssh hacking? (theregister.co.uk)

A box (or group of boxes behind a proxy) at Oracle UK seems to have hit the top 10 of machines on the Internet for launching attacks on boxes which run SSH server software...

This would imply that not only has a computer (or multiple computers) at Oracle UK been compromised without them noticing, but the new owners have then spent the last 3 months using Oracle's bandwidth to hack other boxes elsewhere on the net.

Not so hot for a company which "has built a reputation for delivering many of the industry's most secure solutions"
