ORA-1578 due to misplaced blocks. Database Files are stored in NFS filers. A misplaced block means that a block content was written in a different location (different file or different block) overwriting the original block. The corruption is reported in the alert log and by dbverify with message "Bad header found":
The block is healthy (computed block checksum is 0x0) but the content belongs to a different block. In this example rdba: 0x0b48b570 (rfile#=45, block#=570736) was overwritten with the content of rdba: 0x07078aed (rfile#=28 block#=494317).
