Hi Gurus,

I am very interested in security and we have an audit currently taking place onsite.
I am curious as to what sort of queries IT auditors run against the database?
Can anyone assist me wit these so that I can run them before hand in order to sort out any security vulnerabilities which we might potentially have prior to this being picked up by external auditors?

Any help will greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,
russ

There are many like trivial passwords, old passwords, users with high privileges, CPU/PSU patches applied, hacks through known vulnerabilities, SQL injections, lacks of audit...
