Not properly secured passwords
« on: June 27, 2016, 07:20:18 pm »

Please upgrade to more recent security standards in the password processing field. MD5 is ancient and practically forgotten in modern solutions. Even SHA1 is the past. Also lack of salting is terrible, not to mention of no iterations. Time for a BIG upgrade.

Yes, I know this is left for compatibility reasons, but this is very easy to overcome and change format while user is logging in (auth & upgrade). Hashes could be kept in the same field in DB (would be recognizable by format).

That it a great news! I hope transition won't be problematic (just an upgrade, not full reinstallation) and plugins mostly will stay compatible.
