| Run the SQL query: |
select distinct owner, tablespace_name
where owner not in
order by tablespace_name;
(With respect to the list of special accounts that are excluded from this requirement, it is expected that the DBA will maintain the list to suit local circumstances, adding special accounts as necessary and removing any that are not supposed to be in use in the Oracle deployment that is under review.)
Review the list of returned table owners with the tablespace used.
If any of the owners listed are not default Oracle accounts and use the SYSTEM or any other tablespace not dedicated for the application’s use, this is a finding.
Look for multiple applications that may share a tablespace.
If no records were returned, ask the DBA if any applications use this database.
If no applications use the database, this is not a finding.
If there are applications that do use the database or if the application uses the SYS or other default account and SYSTEM tablespace to store its objects, this is a finding.
