Oracle is constantly suggesting people to use more better combinations of special characters, numerics etc. So if you take care of it, chances are that it would not be so easy for someone to break into your passwords. But I am not too sure that any time, the threat can be completely nullified.
First of all sorry if this is a silly question. I'm still quite new to Oracle..
My company is using Toad for Oracle to access our database, now I found some theads on the internet saying there is a tool which allows to decrypt the oracle passwords.
How can we prevent someone else from decrypting our database passwords?

Is this a security concern?
