Security humor - "bastion" of security

Here is a quote by Gartner that firmly falls into the domain of "security humor": "A new set of critical vulnerabilities shows that Oracle can no longer be considered a bastion of security."

So, again, what was that time when it was considered to be that? Folks at security cons boasted about having dozens of Oracle 0days as far back as last year and likely earlier. I remember seeing one presentation on Oracle security, where the speaker ended the presentation with "Don't ask stupid questions, if you annoy me - remember: I have a stash of Oracle 0days handy" :-)
