    While troubleshooting an unrelated issue with my hosting provider I was made aware that there was an error in the (shared) server log.

    Application information:
    Application domain: /LM/W3SVC/105aaaaa03/ROOT-6-13181111122218313614
    Trust level: Full
    Application Virtual Path: /
    Application Path: h:\root\home\bd-001\www\vt\

    Process information:
    Process ID: 19716
    Process name: w3wp.exe

    Exception type: ConfigurationErrorsException
    Exception message: Unsecured Passwords Format Detected. The Membership Provider that contains the unsecure passwords format is: MySQLMembershipProvider. The obsoleted password format is: Clear.

    There is nothing in the root of my site (live or local). I am using SQL Express and the SimpleMembershipProvider.

    What is going on, and is there anything I need to do?
