It was never my intention to offend you. But I am sorry if the
comment was misinterpreted, please accept my apologies.

Thanks ! I looked at it. We still have the vulnerability since tryton
still allowis anonymous writes into a DB table. That
takes a lot of IO, CPU, online redo logs, and all the overhead
that implies storing info in a RDBMS object. A very high price
that we should avoid.

BTW, if we want to use a DB object to store volatile / ephemeral
information, with heavy IO, we could use unlogged postgres tables. 

Bests,
