Said that salted MD5 is ok but regular MD5 would not be ok. I am a bit confused about this and would apprecaite a response.


The solution is garbage because they store unsalted MD5 hashes of passwords in the database. That is the weakest link in the solution. Nothing else matters.

    Even if they stored a salted MD5, it would be garbage. – Stephen Touset Oct 27 '15 at 4:31
