Oracle Password Security Audit Tool Announced August 9, 2004

Ensync Solutions has released an application that will scan an Oracle instance and will check current accounts against a list of known default usernames and passwords. This application shows how easy it is to check for some common installation vulnerabilities.
According the site:
"The easiest way to access an Oracle database is by using a combination of known default usernames and passwords. There are a large number of these accounts with known default credentials. These default accounts will not be installed in most databases, but a few key ones will be installed along with any others that privileged users have installed as part of adding examples or additional database features.

A second method of accessing a database is by trying combinations of usernames and passwords where the password has been set to the same value as the username. This is a common practice when many databases are first set up. Oracle Security Check will get a list of all users on the system and try and login as that user."


This product has been updated.  For current information see the following link:
