Within the database, object ownership implies full privileges to the owned object, including the privilege to assign access to the owned objects to other subjects. Database functions and procedures can be coded using definer's rights. This allows anyone who uses the object to perform the actions if they were the owner. If not properly managed, this can lead to privileged actions being taken by unauthorized individuals.

Conversely, if critical tables or other objects rely on unauthorized owner accounts, these objects may be lost when an account is removed.


At the command prompt, execute the following command:

# /opt/vmware/vpostgres/current/bin/psql -U postgres -c 'ALTER TABLE <tablename> OWNER TO vc;'

Replace <tablename> with the name of the table discovered during the check.
