Freelancer -- or hire-an-amateur-from-India. Right.

Quote:
The first, Base64, isn't even an encryption algorithm, but an encoding function, something that the participating developers didn't seem to know. Similarly for MD5, which is a hashing function.

"Many participants used hashing and encryption as synonyms," the team of academics said in their research paper.

"Of the 18 participants who received the additional security request, 3 decided to use Base64 and argued, for example: '[I] encrypted it so the clear password is not visible' and 'It is very tough to decrypt'," researcher said --highlighting that some study participants didn't know the basic difference between an encryption algorithm and a function that just jumbles characters around.
Yep, still get this from so-called "experienced" devs. Roll eyes | :rolleyes: Sniff | :^) Sigh | :sigh:
