Does hashing passwords multiple times make them safe

Jul 1

I don't normally write a blog post about someone elses post but every now and again I stumble across something interesting or informative or just well written and I like to make an exception. This week twitter popped up a little discussion on stackoverflow, and I thought the answer was all of the above. 

Its all to easy to answer technical quesions either rather bluntly or abruptly when you know what you're talking about but the answer here was put really well and broken nicely and the end result is something which is easy to read and actually leaves you more informed at the end of it. Nice one!
