Hello all,
We've just noticed that when a user authenticates via LDAP, it  ignores
characters after the right password.
For example a user jkc900 has Password Welcome1

What password hashing mechanism are you using?

"Welcome1" is exactly 8 characters. Older, insecure hashes only treat the first 8 characters as significant.
