5.2.1 Ensure '%ANY%' Is Revoked from Unauthorized 'GRANTEE'


The Oracle database ANY keyword provides the user the capability to alter any item in the catalog of the database. Unauthorized grantees should not have that keyword assigned to them.


Authorization to use the ANY expansion of a privilege can allow an unauthorized user to potentially change confidential data or damage the data catalog.


To remediate this setting, execute the following SQL statement, keeping in mind if this is granted in both container and pluggable database, you must connect to both places to revoke.

REVOKE '<ANY Privilege>' FROM <grantee>;
