What Are the Default Restrictions on Oracle Passwords?

I saw an interesting post on the Life after coffee blog about Oracle passwords in a post titled - (broken link) What Are the Default Restrictions on Oracle Passwords?. I have written myself about the same features of Oracle passwords myself a few times in the past. This is not new news about Oracle passwords, its well known and documented but I liked this short article as it explains the issues well and its quite "now".
