Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Or maybe both of them?! md5(md4(password)); – Sepahrad Salour Aug 27 '13 at 10:41
Or neither of them or something else! As far as we can see it's just a string of what appears to be random characters. – Dave Aug 27 '13 at 10:45
@Keyur - Look at the source code for Magento and modify the Wordpress code to use the same hashing mechanic. I suggest you force a password change on your users, md5 hashing, is not proper for storing password. If your database was compromised it would be trivial to determine your user's password ( ar at least the string that generated the same hash ). – Ramhound Aug 27 '13 at 10:46
@Ramhound Even though MD5 has been unacceptable for passwords since years now, it's still commonly used. It's not unlikely to find MD5-hashed passwords these days—or even plaintext passwords, unfortunately. – slhck Aug 27 '13 at 10:49
@slhck - Which is the reason I suggested the author allows Wordpress to use the better password hashing mechanic instead of using Megento's md5 + salt password hashing mechanic. – Ramhound Aug 27 '13 at 10:59

Magento uses MD5 hashes, which are salted and stored in the database as a combination of:


So in your case, 10d32f6e654e8a54062325962f7419d5 is the hash and 45 is the salt.
