Hi Fernando,

The passwords in the DB are not reversible, so you'd either need to transfer them in their current form, if that is suitable, or get users to re-enter them in the new system.

Older versions were just MD5 hashed. Newer passwords are salted and hashed. 

Check PasswordService in the kernel.
