Password Encryption

Post by ThatBoogieman on March 4th 2011, 6:10 am

So, it has just come to my attention that all user passwords on my forum - possibly all Forumotion forums - are not encrypted. At least, they appear in plain text in your registration confirmation e-mail.

Could someone please tell me what, if any, encryption is protecting my users' passwords?

EDIT: Also, if there is no encryption, I'm likely deleting the forum, and would HIGHLY suggest adding at least a a +MD5 salt encryption on ALL passwords.

Your question best likely should be PM'ed to Typlo. He can answer you in the best possible way.

Bleh. Tried, and apparently there's a posting limit on being able to send PMs. Could you direct his attention here for me, please?

Also, just ran a test on password recovery, and didn't get the same password back in plain text, so that's good. I'd still like to know what encryption is used to reassure my users, and also suggest that a user's password isn't sent in an e-mail plain-text upon registration, as that's still a slight security issue, especially for anyone I make an admin.
