Oracle Default Accounts

High Nessus Plugin ID 22075


One or more default accounts have been found in the remote database.


The remote Oracle database server has one or more default accounts, possibly from older versions of Oracle or third-party software that uses Oracle.

An attacker may use these accounts to gain access to the database and read or possibly even modify it.


If using a third-party product, contact the vendor for an update.

Otherwise, either disable the reported accounts or change the associated passwords.
