Yes it is correct as the DBs are mostly 10g and I check and found that select password from dba_users where username='ORACLE'

First guess, is this an externally authenticated user?

Does anybody know as what is the significance of "oracle" user in the database. I checked the default user list on Pete Security URL and also found that he listed this user in his one of the doc with some default password. It is not visible in all database but only in few database and so want to check as why it is created in the database. Google failed to bring the result
