Default password lists and updates

I managed to get a few hours this evening to work on a new default password list that I have been working on for a few weeks now. Marcel-Jan let me have his default password checking script some weeks ago and I posted that to my site last week and if you have downloaded it you will have seen that it included a spreadsheet of about 470 default passwords for the Oracle database. I also have been collecting default Oracle passwords for over a year now from various sources on the net. My plan was to collate Marcel-Jan's list with mine and publish it on my site.

This is what I have been working on this evening. I now have the complete list of default users and passwords installed in an Oracle database table (its about 20% larger than Marcelís list, about 600 default users and their passwords) and have written some simple PL/SQL to extract comma separated lists, SQL insert statements for Marcel-Jan's tool, a HTML table for my site and MS Excel and Open Office spreadsheets. The plan is to convert this to mysql and create Perl to do the extracts so that it can all be maintained from the site.

So sometime tomorrow I will post up the new default password list page and the various types of list and I will also post an update to Marcel-Jan's tool with a bigger data file, new spreadsheet and a small fix to the DDL. I will update you tomorrow on progress and release of all of this.
