sha1 Password Security

Long passwords with special characters are the most secure since many online decrypters can translate basic sha1 strings, but fail at complex combinations. Regardless of the encrypted security, security really starts with 'Who can access your database?". Administrators often have access to encrypted login strings since they have complete access to the database. If they really wanted to; they could quickly replace your string with one of their own and login with a new password. Then, they could easily put your back; regardless of how well you encrypted you string.
