A standard method is to change the password in the account, then set it
back to the original 
using the encrypted value after the task is done.  I don't recall the
details since it's been many 
years since I used it.  Would this meet your needs?

        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 ?
