Password hashing upgrades
edited July 2018 in News & Announcements
My friend Andrew had contributed some code that enables the use of bcrypt for hashing passwords; which is more secure than SHA-256 for this purpose; especially if your password wasn't salted!
Unlike last time when I hacked in salting, your password should be automatically upgraded on signon, so don't worry about it. If the site was being erratic, it was because I was chasing bugs that were only getting exposed in prod
Thank you for keeping on top of such things!
Squashed what I think was the last of the production bugs. It should be stable now.
Glad to have done it!
For the record, I've lurked around WinWorld for a while now, and even contributed the copy of Mac OS X 10.2 we have.
Thanks for doing this (I think either me or someone else requested this feature on IRC a long while back).
We need a like button for things like this.
@calvinb Thanks for all the work you put into this!
