I am not a skilled Unix Scripter, so I do need someone help.  I work in Security within the UNIX Sever Environment.  I run Security scans and now I need to go a step further.  I need a script that will allow me to find 'cleartext' passwords on the application and database servers.  We are running Solaris9 and 10 and Oracle 9i and 10g.  Do I use a find command or a grep/egrep command?  I would like to put the output (with server name) in my home directory, which is nfs shared.  Please let me know where I can turn to for help!
