Changing passwords for seeded applications accounts

I have inherited an Oracle 7.3.4 database with 10.7 char applications running on it. The default passwords were never changed for the seeded applications accounts (OE, AP, AR, MFG, etc.). How do I safely change these passwords?

To change the passwords, sign on as SYS or SYSTEM and issue the following command:
ALTER USER oe IDENTIFIED BY new_password;
