BCrypt for Admin & Client passwords
HostBill now creates password using BCrypt. For non-geek readers: BCrypt is hashing algorithm based on Blowfish. How’s that different from older (considered as broken) hashing mechanisms? BCrypt keeps up with Moore Law which in short words mean that even in future with faster machines it will take roughly same amount of time (in years) to crack single password.
Q: Would my/client old password work?
A: Sure, once you will login after upgrade HostBill will automatically rehash your password with new method.
