SQL Server is more secure than Oracle and MySQL

Here’s a great piece of evidence that demonstrates that SQL Server is more secure than Oracle and MySQL. In fact, it shows that Oracle on Linux is the most "breakable" stack. Take a look at the facts in the study:

Comparing software vulnerabilities of database server roles: SQL 2000 on Windows Server 2003 (including all components) database server with Oracle 10g on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and MySql on Red Hat Enterprise Linux:
Oracle 10g on Linux has 3 times as many vulnerabilities as SQL 2000 on Windows Server 2003
MySql on Linux has nearly twice as many vulnerabilities as SQL 2000 on Windows Server 2003
Comparing software vulnerabilities of just the database software: SQL 2000; MySql and Oracle 10g
SQL 2000 had the lowest number of vulnerabilities in the most recent 12 months, with zero, while Oracle had the high number of vulnerabilities with 30
Comparing vendor response of Microsoft with Red Hat and Oracle:
Average days-of-risk was lower for the Microsoft stack than either MySql on Red Hat Linux or Oracle on Red Hat Linux
