Any default accounts and passwords in Oracle Unbreakable Linux

Hi there,

This is a bit of a newbie question but are there any default accounts and default passwords to watch out for on an install of Oracle Unbreakable Linux. The root account is password is set on install but what of the other default accounts, is there any concern with them being logged into, e.g.:
- Sync
- Shutdown
- Halt
- News
- Netdump

Look at /etc/passwd

All accounts with nologin can not login.
The ones that don't have that are already on the system anyway, so they don't need to log in.
