Drew is on holiday so Ethan steps up to keep Network Break running this week. Oracle’s CSO tells its customers to stop security testing its software and breaching the license.

F5 Releases Big-IP 12.0 “Badger”
The release we have to have because when you get to 11.6, 11.7 just doesn’t sound right.

Arista Q2 Results Better Than Expected
Strong Q2 Continues Arista Networks’ Growth Curve – SDX Central
Analysts had been disappointed that Arista Networks’ second-quarter forecast didn’t exceed $191 million. They might have been appeased today, as Arista’s actual second-quarter revenues topped $195 million. That represents 9 percent growth over the previous quarter and 41 percent over the second quarter a year ago.”

Oracle – You Can’t Perform Security Testing On Our Products
No, You Really Can’t – Mary Ann Davidson Blog
Recently, I have seen a large-ish uptick in customers reverse engineering our code to attempt to find security vulnerabilities in it. <Insert big sigh here.> This is why I’ve been writing a lot of letters to customers that start with “hi, howzit, aloha” but end with “please comply with your license agreement and stop reverse engineering our code, already.”
If we determine as part of our analysis that scan results could only have come from reverse engineering (in at least one case, because the report said, cleverly enough, “static analysis of Oracle XXXXXX”), we send a letter to the sinning customer, and a different letter to the sinning consultant-acting-on-customer’s behalf – reminding them of the terms of the Oracle license agreement that preclude reverse engineering, So Please Stop It Already.”
