Description
###########
Every user with CREATE JOB privilege can switch the SESSION_USER to SYS
by 
executing a database job via dbms_scheduler. This could cause problems
with 
VPD (virtual private database) or OLS (Oracle label security) and could
allow 
privilege escalation.

This issue is not related to the Oracle Critical Patch Update 2005.
