MD5 password encode


Will

Recommended Posts

I am currently running a mccodes v1.1 engine. The passwords aren't encoded so I added "`userpass`=md5('{$_POST['password']}')to authenticate and changed the register page. I then ran the query:

$rfr=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users",$c) or die(mysql_error());

while($r=mysql_fetch_array($rfr))

{

mysql_query("UPDATE users SET userpass=md5('{$r['userpass']}') WHERE userid=$userid",$c) or die(mysql_error());

}

This all works fine but I have a "Send Password" feature which now won't work for obvious reasons.

Is there anyway to un-encode the encoded password?

Re: MD5 password encode

perhaps you could have a security question. The user supplies an answer for the question they chose. They also type their email and username...this wud purely be to validate the user. Then offer them the chance to reset the password in md5 hash

Not wise to have security questions ;)

Password reset would be the best.

Re: MD5 password encode

no its a security number but you cant change the pass of the user

if that your email and your user name is all correct then you can

change and you can only set your pin once once it is set thatshas worked good so far but i plan on posing it soon maybe some one will give more options to have more security
