A GUI default password checking tool

I was emailed by Mark Woan a week or two ago who told me about a GUI .NET tool that he has written to check Oracle default passwords. It uses the Oracle default password list from my site. I also have a default password checking tool available from my site.

Marks tool is a GUI tool and has the following features quoted to me in an email:

  • Automated password list updating

  • Default user/password checking

  • TNS Listener Security settings retrieval

  • Noddy password checking e.g. test/test

  • Logging

This looks like a useful tool and it is available from - (broken link) Marks website. I have also updated my Oracle Security Tools page to include this tool in the free tools section.
