ANSWERS: A

SAP* has full authorization and is intended to be used as a back door for SAP; however, you can lock this hole from your system by setting the default parameter login/no_automatic_user_sapstar to a value greater than zero and deleting the user ID. This will ensure that no one is able to delete your SAP* from the database and login with the initial password of PASS.
