[wp-hackers] Wordpress Event Viewer Plugin

I have a rule: I only repeat my username/pass combo if I know for fact that
the site uses encryption.

For instance, IPB, vBulletin, MyTopix, MyBB - I trust these, because it
encrypts the password in the DB.

For sites I know for a fact don't use encryption in the DB (like eBlah, some
punBB) or sites I don't know about, I use unique passwords.

It's not fail-proof, esp. since you can hook into the pre-encryption or
login methods and dump the raw password, but it's a fairly reliable method
