Oracle Database 12c INHERIT PRIVILEGES Privilege (PL/SQL Security) Tutorial
Oracle Database Security Tutorial for PL/SQL
Historically, we had definer’s rights and invoker’s rights. Definer’s rights code lets the invoker escalate his privileges, invoker’s rights code lets the definer escalate his privileges. Big problem! And the use of roles complicated things further. We have all been caught out by misunderstanding how roles are applied (or not) within PL/SQL. Oracle Database 12c tidies this up, with the INHERIT [ANY] PRIVILEGE privilege, and the ability to grant roles to program units. It is enabled by default, so make sure you understand it.
