After applying <Patch 21507207> ORACLE APPLICATIONS RELEASE 12.1: CPU PATCH FOR OCT 2015 users are reporting login issues.
Users are able to complete the initial login without problems, however after a session timeout the User Name field is automatically populated with Non-ascii, Hexadecimal Type Characters.
Specifically the issue occurs when a username includes special characters like '@' (e.g. email@example.com), as the special character is replaced with a hexadecimal value (for '@' this is '%40').
For example the characters may look something like the below:
� �� �j��� km^
The incorrect characters must be corrected manually for user login to succeed as intended.
