I opened the database and i found that user's passwords stored as it was provided in UI (in clear text), am i missing something?, is there is any configurations that i missed?!, or really openERP stores passwords like that?
As i know that in term of security it is a very bad practice to store passwords without strong hashing (SHA-256+) and salting!
Well, actually that's a feature, so that it's possible to recover lost passwords.
As for the reason for cleartext passwords: once you switch to encrypted passwords you can't recover user passwords anymore . So enabling it is a choice, because there's no going back. We don't currently plan to make passwords encrypted by default.
See the full discussion on the "base_crypt and users_ldap don't work together" bug report.
