no. we added to old 'password' question to one of the sites I did for this
reason.  When the client registered, they picked a question, ssn, mother's
maiden name, dog's name, etc and entered an answer.  That way if they lost
their password, they could go to a 'lost password' area, enter their
username, select and answer their question. they were then logged in and
could change their password.

of course Marco's suggestions is good also, that way you can confirm you are
speaking to the actual user before you change their password.

Subject: [PHP-DB] md5 question!


If I use md5 to handle passwords to my database is
there a way to reverse the action if someone forgets
their password?  Is there a way for me to decode the
32bit to plain text?
