Java Flaws Don't Impact Oracle CEO Salary

Larry Ellison is the CEO of Oracle, the company that provides powerful database software to businesses around the world. Oracle also purchased Java in 2010 and has maintained the product since. Oracle's Java and Adobe's Flash and PDF Reader products continue to be the most exploited pieces of software for Windows and other users, despite multiple continuing patches. The security issues have persisted with these products for years now. Mr Ellison still managed to pull in an income of $96 million last year - about $3 per second.

Oh, and a pet peeve - the multi-billion dollar company also tries to make a few more pennies by installing the crappy Ask toolbar by default when you install Java.
