RE: Pete Finnigan's Oracle database password checker

There are a myriad of tools out there for 
scanning unix passwords 
(SATAN was one I used in the 90s, not sure if it's still around).   

I would think that the dictionaries of words that comes with any 
of these utilities would be a good starting point.

Guillermo,

I know.  But anybody have a clue of where to get a list of dictionary
words to load into a database?

If you read the file you downloaded you'll see that there is a procedure
that loads an array (procedure init_dicts) and you can add lines there.
Also, init_hashes loads the hashes database.

You could certainly modify the procedure to load the array from a table
with something like:

Procedure init_dicts is
J number;
Begin
J:=1;
For i in (select * from table) loop
Dicts(J):=i.word;
J:=J+1;
End loop;
End;

I ran it in two of my development environments.  My question is how do I
extend the dictionary that Pete included in the routine.  His Web page
states that it can be extended.  Anybody have any ideas about how to get
a dictionary loaded into an Oracle database?
