Some updates to the Oracle default password list

I have just updated the Oracle default user list for two reasons. First is that I had added 21 default users with a trailing space in the name and password in all of the lists, sql, html, csv, xls and sxc. The second is that I have added two new default users. Thanks to Mohan for pointing out the space character issue.

The default users affected were CS, CN, RG, CE, WH, CZ, JA, JE, JG, FV, JL, ME, OE, EC, FA, GR, PA, PN, PV, QA, QP.

I have also added two new default users and their passwords that I found recently, VPD_ADMIN and DATA_SCHEMA.

All of the lists types available on the Oracle default users page have been updated as have the spreadsheet and the data installation script in the default password check script.

I would advise anyone who has used this script or the lists to download an updated version and run the checks again. Thanks again to Mohan for pointing these fixes to me.
