Fix password security in 10.3.x for upgraded accounts
Authored by: mikerose on Dec 07, '04 11:17:47AM

This is deliberate... since you used to be able to get the password hashes, someone could try to crack them. 10.3 and after (as long as you change your password at least once), they are stored as shadow passwords and cannot be exported.

Best way to handle the migration would be to change all your passwords pre-move, then change them back to secure passwords after you upgrade.
