Try to get involved in a JDEdwards project - an Oracle own product - where ALL tables get GRANT ALL TO PUBLIC by default, during the initial install.
I was nearly fired when I objected and refused to run it like that.

What's worse: it's Oracle themselves, sanctioning this state of affairs! That's the kind of "expertise" that now frequents that company and is responsible for their own products... Received on Sun Nov 23 2014 - 09:37:41 CET
