Changing Plain Text Passwords to Hashed Passwords

Hey there,

So I have been using MySQL for years now and never had a problem but as my website grows I have forgotten that my users database is somewhat insecure. Currently the passwords column is in plain text which up until this point was no problem but we have recently opened our website up to anonymous registrations. I was hoping I could get some advice on how I can hash our existing and new passwords in the database without disrupting our website and having to rewrite any code.

Ideas?

Thank you so much!
Kevin
