Security of database file access

This member-submitted tip explains how to avoid unauthorized access to the database computer.

To avoid unauthorized access to the database computer you must first disable anonymous log in. Secondly, you should enable the logging system of the computer to have audit system to check out any abnormal dial-in and/or log-in. This would suffer a little CPU resource. Thirdly, you can assign rights/privileges to some experienced database administrator and also enable the logging of write records for auditing any intended/unintended data overwrite mistakes. Again, this would also consume CPU time.
