I see Oracle is starting to release regular fixes for "exploits" to its database products like Microsoft does. I believe ClamWin 1.0 will use an Oracle database for some functions Will this make ClamWin 1.0 more vulnerable to exploits?

Well, with Oracle 51 exploits fixed this month and about 100 fixed last month, I thought it was a valid question to ask. I want to make sure that my chosen antivirus product isn't going to let something in my system while it's keeping other things out.

No AV product is completely safe, however. Look at Kaspersky last year--it had to fix lots of stuff.
