alter session set sort_area_size = 1M

The process is asking the OS for additional memory and the OS denies the request, either because there is no memory (or swap) available or because the process has reached the max limit.

Another possible solution is to increase your Shared Pool. If you are on 10g, then consider enabling Automatic Shared Memory Management (ASMM). This will automatically manage your memory allocations for you.
