Just wondering.

What hasing and encryption algorithms does MyBB use by default. I think its MD5 with a salt, not sure.

Overall is it secure and if someone got hold of my database in the rare event, would they be able to decrypt/unhash?

Salted MD5.

Yes, if someone gets your database it's fairly trivial to decrypt the individual passwords.

Follow that tutorial and upgrade to bcrypt.
Thanks for the quick reply.
And an extra thanks for 'cutting-to-the-chase' and providing resources for me.
