A user with admin rights can give him/herself dba priviliges. And so connect as 
sysdba, and do anything he/she likes, whatever a sysdba can do.

Subject: Oracle 9i on Windows 2003 -- Vulnerability Question


I am trying to make our database more secure, one of the scenarios we
came up is:
'what if an internal hacker (somehow) gets to our database server?'
1) what kind of damages he/she could cause, and 
2) what we need to do to protect our databases?
3) Could hacker be able to browse data?

Any article in this regard? 

OS is Windows 2003, Oracle is 
The hacker has admin rights on the server.
