    Was bbpassword changed?

    My user bridge broke when I upgraded to 3.6.6....was the cookie 'bbpassword' changed with the 3.6.6 patch?

    It use to be md5( md5(password) . salt ) but is no longer matching in vB 3.6.7.

    Thank you for contacting vBulletin Support.

    I am not sure if I can be of any real help, this is a customization request, best asked over at vBulletin.org. However, as far as I know the method is : md5(md5('password') . user.salt)
    I haven't read or heard anything about this being changed between 3.5 and 3.6 (yet). Maybe someone can correct or confirm this who has more experience with dealing with integration of third party software.

    Good luck with your bridge, I hope it works again soon. And if you require any further information feel free to ask.

    All the best,
