as for the formula that they use i doupt anyone knows that because its a secret, well unless you work for them.
its probably sha1 or something stronger but i dont think there are people out there trying to crack md5 or sha1 encryptions unless they have a real good reason.
so unless your trying to run something that stores a users account information that has to deal with money or very very personal information like social security etc.. then i wouldnt worry about making your database too security proof.
unless you get people from
ha.ckers.org web application security lab
trying to penetrate your web app and tell everyone about it
then i wouldnt worry so much.
