More security help in 10g R2

September 29th, 2005 by Pete

I saw a post on Laurent Schneider's blog titled "FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS default to 10 in 10gR2" and went or a look because of the security connotation. I have not got a 10gR2 database here to try this out but it seems like a move in the right direction. This implies that the default profile now has values set, i need to check. The value of 10 though I would not agree though. It needs to be lower, at least 5 or maybe lower.
