Password Hashes

I noticed a diffrence in the way 3.4.5 encrypts the
passwords. It looks like HEX encryption, but am not
sure. I am using mod_auth_mysql and have tried the
AuthMySQLPwEncryption MD5 but it does not like it. Can
anyone tell me exactly how RT 3.4.5 handles the
encryption method?

Thanks

Ok i think i got it. Does anyone have a script that
will parse the rt Users table and update the way a
users password is stored. For example, i noticed that
after the initial login on RT 3.4.5 (newly upgraded
from 3.0.1) the password is updated with the new
encryption algarythim, is there anyway i can get RT to
update them automaticly without waiting for the user
to login?

THanks
