    sys password bypass

    I found this by accident.

    I used the PWD.....ora file to connect to sys as sysdba. We all know this is possible.

    >conn sys/95AA47D6E59241CD@my_db as sydba
    >connected

    Then I used another database's "incrypted" sys password e.g 4DE42795E66117AB and connected again to the first database sys user?

    How the hell is this possible?

    if you are in the dba group you will get in whatever you put as the password

    Try creating a user with no special prvileges, who isn't in the dba group. Then log in as that user and try to log into Oracle with the second encrypted password above.
