Weak hashing library (MD5) detected.
- Source: weak_hash_md5.yml
A weak hashing library can lead to data breaches and greater security risk.
According to OWASP, MD5 is considered a weak hash algorithm and therefore shouldn't be used.
✅ Use stronger hashing algorithms when storing data.
const crypto = require("crypto");
const key = "secret key";
const hash = crypto.createHmac("es-256-cbc", key).update(user.password);
