Hello matrik02.

Yeah, there is a way to prevent the user to change their own password.

First, you must create this function as SYS:
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION "SYS"."VERIFY_FUNCTION_FIX_PWD"
(username VARCHAR2,
password VARCHAR2, old_password VARCHAR2) RETURN boolean IS
BEGIN
raise_application_error(-20009, 'SORRY, PASSWORD CANNOT BE CHANGED') ;
END ;

Second, you must create an profile, or assign this function to an existent one:
ALTER PROFILE "SECURE_PASS" LIMIT PASSWORD_VERIFY_FUNCTION VERIFY_FUNCTION_FIX_PWD;

Third, you must assign this profile to taht user:
ALTER USER "USER_NAME" PROFILE "SECURE_PASS";

That's all folks.

Regards
Daniel
