Just saying, but hashes are not enough. Passwords need to be encrypted not just hashed. Unsalted MD5 hashes are absolutely insecure for example

They should be salted; salt is just extra crap thrown into the hash function so an attacker can't just hash every entry of an attack dictionary and test his hashed-dictionary against the hashed passwords. "Encryption" sounds two-way, which you don't want.

If your password is extremely random looking a plain MD5 hash is going to be sufficient since there's no way to tell *which* of the possible passwords is yours. Not so much for the next guy whose password is "password".
