Recently I started getting ORA-00600 error, while I was trying to connect to SQLPlus

sqlplus sys as sysdba

Enter password:
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kzsrgpw], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []

This was caused due to a corrupt password file. Re-creating password file fixed the issue.

orapwd file=$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapw$ORACLE_SID password=syspassword entries=<5>
