Howard Rogers on dropping the DBA, CONNECT and RESOURCE roles

Its like buses, you wait hours for one to come and then two come around the corner at the same time. I have just posted a blog entry about the issues with revoking privileges from SYS and DBA and dropping these roles and then went over to Howard Roger’s site to see if he had any new weblog entries and found that he had written about the same subject on December 8th. Howard’s entry is more related to the advice Daniel gave and why its wrong. In my entry I tried to concentrate on the end consensus. Still, Howard’s blog entry Hoist by his own DBA petard... is relevant in this context and is worth a read!
