oracle voyage worm

I wrote a mini script to protect my customer from being attacked by an “oracle voyage worm” variant :

revoke CREATE DATABASE LINK from CONNECT;
revoke ALL on SYS.UTL_FILE from PUBLIC;
revoke ALL on SYS.UTL_HTTP from PUBLIC;
revoke ALL on SYS.UTL_SMTP from PUBLIC;
revoke ALL on SYS.UTL_TCP from PUBLIC;
grant EXECUTE on SYS.UTL_FILE to XDB;
grant EXECUTE on SYS.UTL_HTTP to MDSYS;
grant EXECUTE on SYS.UTL_HTTP to ORDPLUGINS;
@?/rdbms/admin/utlrp


Than, in OEM 10g, check for policy violations.

I added a few grants to special oracle internal users, to avoid invalid objects, which is also a policy violation in OEM… OEM will report a violation if those accounts are not locked and expired
