Re: hashed passwords for perlmonksby Anonymous Monk
|on Mar 27, 2013 at 15:45 UTC||Need Help??|
I *was* a frequent user of PerlMonks. I even achieved Saint status. Then hackers broke into the site and got my plaintext password from a database.
Out of protest I've never since logged into PerlMonks and I never will. Passwords should never be stored as plaintext. Amazingly the Gods on this site are proud and refuse to hash the passwords. It is unfortunate they didn't take up your willingness to help.
