- This is the error which protects your Oracle database from brute forcing of its users and/or passwords.
- This is the error, which when not thrown, can result into schema disclosure, password guesses, privilege disclosure to name a few security threats.
- This is the error, which gave me my first Zero-Day Exploit
- This is my favourite error out of all ORA errors (very very closely followed by ORA-600 and ORA-7445 errors)
01017, 00000, "invalid username/password; logon denied"
