If you are the owner you can just do chmod.  If a local system, root can also do this.

Use the find command to discover all directories of files ownd by "oracle" and then change them:

 

find / -user oracle -exec chown newuser {} \;

 

Two comments though:

 you need to do this as root or as oracle

 

 this sounds dangerous - that are a lot of files that need to be owned by oracle - perhaps limit this to a particular directory rather than starting your find command at /   ???
