O112-BP-021700 - The Oracle WITH GRANT OPTION privilege must not be granted to non-DBA or non-Application administrator user accounts.

Information

An account permission to grant privileges within the database is an administrative function. Minimizing the number and privileges of administrative accounts reduces the chances of privileged account exploitation. Application user accounts should never require WITH GRANT OPTION privileges since, by definition, they require only privileges to execute procedures or view / edit data.

Solution

Revoke privileges granted the WITH GRANT OPTION from non-DBA and accounts that do not own application objects.

Re-grant privileges without specifying WITH GRANT OPTION.
