[Resolved] Security question : can a SQL dump be exploited to obtain passwords ?
I have to give a copy of my blog’s database (an SQL dump made with phpmyadmin) to a coder, to write a few php lines for my blog.
However, I am not sure about the safety of the procedure, could I ask you a simple confirmation, please ?
- –> Am I right in believing that it is NOT possible to find, in my blog’s database, the admin’s password ?
Unless I am mistaken, the password is encrypted and can’t be decrypted, so it should be safe to grant access to my database’s dump to a techie. But I would really hate being mistaken on that matter 😀
Thank you VERY much if you could give me a confirmation (or not, of course) 🙂
