We have to have a category discussing the website itself. Why take anything we have to say to Discord when you can discuss it here!

Change to a more secure password Hashing Algorithm

I was going through the source code for the website and I found out that md5 was being used instead of something like sha256 or even bcrypt. md5 has proven to be an obsolete algorithum and multiple collisions have also been found, hence I propose that to make the platform more secure, we move to Bcrypt.

md5 in the source: https://github.com/profullstack/reddit-clone-api-js/blob/master/utils/md5.js
