RE: getting users passwords in plain text

Vincent,
 
You haven't adequately (for me, at least) explained what you're trying
to do.  What exactly do you want to accomplish?  
 
There is no script that converts encrypted/hashed passwords to plain
text, and if there were, I'm sure Oracle would be interested in hearing
about it.  Protected passwords are a basic component of Oracle security.

the  $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlpwdmg.sql
<http://download-uk.oracle.com/docs/cd/B10501_01/server.920/a96536/ch53.

        Not exactly sure what you want to do, but you might google for
the undocumented "alter user XXX identified by values..." command.  It
will let you set the passwords back to what they were without knowing
them.

        Hi Experts,
        
        I have a question that's a bit unethical. 
        
        For a company i'm working for i need to find out what the
passwords are of oracle users. As changing them means a lot of work for
allot of poeple. 
        
        Is there anyway i can clear text the password from dba database,
i have sysdba and all privs.
        
        any points would be nice also i want to put this into script so
if anyone has something ?
