ABSTRACT
The article presents news briefs related to the computer industry. International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) will stop mainstream support for its OS/2 operating system at the end of 2005 and is encouraging dedicated users to move to other systems, including Linux. IBM initially co-developed OS/2 with Microsoft Corp. It is informed that a security research firm has reported six vulnerabilities in products from Oracle Corp. that were not fixed in the supplier's last round of patches. Oracle last week issued fixes for almost 50 vulnerabilities in its quarterly cycle, but Red-Database-Security has revealed additional flaws in Oracle Reports, Oracle Forms and other Oracle software.
