See internals of Oracle 2006 security patch
This web page has complete details on the Jan 2006 security patch with excellent detail on the specific fixes in the patchset:
The web page also claims that the Oracle password checker is lacking:

With this CPU Oracle delivers a so-called password checking tool (Patch 4926128). This tool is just a SQL-Select statement which checks the existence of some password hashes. This SELECT statement is incomplete. You should always access the table SYS.USER$ to avoid hidden users (details see Oracle rootkits ). 

----------------Oracle Password Checking Tool 

SELECT username "Account Name", account_status "Account Status"
FROM dba_users
WHERE (username, password) IN (
('SYS',                         '5638228DAF52805F'),
('SYS',                         'D4C5016086B2DC6A'),
('SYSTEM',                      'D4DF7931AB130E37'),
('CTXSYS',                      '24ABAB8B06281B4C'),
('DBSNMP',                      'E066D214D5421CCC'),
('MDSYS',                       '72979A94BAD2AF80'),
('MDSYS',                       '9AAEB2214DCC9A31'),
('OUTLN',                       '4A3BA55E08595C81'),
('SCOTT',                       'F894844C34402B67'),
('ORDCOMMON',                         '9B616F5489F90AD7'))
AND account_status <> 'EXPIRED \& LOCKED'
ORDER BY username;
If you need a good, free and fast password checker you could use checkpwd from Red-Database-Security GmbH. Checkpwd is a real password checker.
