Error description

  • If a user successfully execute a non-DDL statement, and the
    needed privileges are inherited through role membership (with
    the role granted to the user's group), then after the role was
    revoked from the group, the user can still execute the same
    statement where the statement has already completed the
    authorization checking. The user will continue to be able to
    re-execute this same statement until they disconnect from the
    database or attempt to execute another statement.
