Hashing function in Filezilla Server.xml

#1 Post by CBuchs » 2019-01-21 09:41

I'm doing a Powershell script to automatically add some accounts to my Filezilla Server, and so I'm editing the Filezilla Server.xml file in order to do so.
I can see that the password is hashed with a salt.

Then my question is : what's the type of the hash (MD5, SHA, AES...) ?

Best regards :)

Salted SHA-512. Please see viewtopic.php?f=6&t=39934 for a quite humorous discussion about this.

As developer, if you're worth your salt (pun intended), you'll understand ;)
