This would require them to have a copy of the database (or at least a direct connection to it).

And if you can get a hold of the application code (even the compiled version) then salting your hashes doesn't much matter. With some effort the hacker could identifier your salt key and process and adjust their "hacking software" to make their rainbow tables work again. Although you should be safe if you are using a password manager as it's likely they will have your password in their list.

Let's just hope this "company X" doesn't have your credit card details stored right next to the plain text password Laugh | :laugh:
