Are the Odoo developers promoting insecure by default in their coding practices?
Someone filed an issue on github https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/1975
which showed that the passwords in Odoo and OpenERP for that matter are not being hashed:
"Password hashing is one of the most basic security considerations that must be made when designing any application that accepts passwords from users. Without hashing, any passwords that are stored in your application's database can be stolen if the database is compromised, and then immediately used to compromise not only your application, but also the accounts of your users on other services, if they do not use unique passwords."

Just for those who don't know the difference between hashing and encrypting passwords:
Besides hasing passwords I also think a salt should be added.
Odoo is supposed to be used by businesses. If this is the kind of security that the Odoo developers
are encouraging then they deserve to be dragged to the stake and burned, since they don't seem to care about the security of the businesses
that are going to be using their software.
