Locking ( or changing ) sys & system accounts
I would like to consider the changing of my sys & system accounts to help thwart off hackers.
I have utilized the list of khown username/password combinations available at Finnigan.com to eliminate the "easy guess"
Why give them half the information they need anyway!!
I cannot recall encountering this at any of the sites I have worked at.
I am either innovative or a damn fool.
Wouldnt the new account with equal elevated privleges be considered a "backdoor" into the DB, and therefore a larger liability than having the the default username(s) in place?
Would I encounter issues in the periodic admin requirements like on/offlining resources? Tablespaces etc? Starting stopping?
Pros - cons - pitfalls?
Thanks for you reply!
