[Info] New back-end password function, all need to reset passwords!
30-Jan-17, 02:30
For those wondering why they need to change passwords, well here is an explanation.

At Hexui we have for long used mybb's default md5 hashing function for hashing passwords, this algoritm is weak against bruteforcing attempts made with tools such as hashcat.
A proper cracking build could properly take down all password combinations in the range of 1-9 characters within a hour.

Being able to crack our hashed passwords would need them to get our database with the passwords first which is quite an impossible task in my eyes.
That doesn't mean it can not happen, and that's why we are changing the hashing function to "bcrypt" to prevent any crack attempts if a database leak ever is going to happen.

OBS: We have to forced all users to log-out.
