Password encryption?

The passwords in the users.config file in the App_Data folder are encrypted. What type of encryption are these passwords encrypted by? and is it possible to decrypt these passwords?

I am pretty sure you need the password to decrypt the stored value! if you could simply reverse engineer it then what good is that to the User?

i was just wondering how passwords are encrypted. i created two users, both with the same password but in the users.config file, the encrypted password is different. it seems very secure, but is there a way for hackers to decrypt these?
