md5 encryption

MD5 (Message Digest algorithm 5) is a widely used cryptographic hash function.

MD5 is commonly used to encrypt passwords for users who access the administration section of a web script (e.g. WordPress, Joomla, Drupal).

An MD5 hash is typically expressed as a 32 digit hexadecimal number.
