Koha dropping security support

The Koha developers and users have decided that security and privacy of libraries and their users data is no longer a concern. When asked about this decision, Chris Cormack, one of the original Koha developers said: “Naw, it’s not really an issue anymore”. When pressed about the decision to store users passwords in plain text after 15 years of encryption/hashing, he said “Hey, if no one else is going to bother safeguarding the data, why should we ?”
