[wp-hackers] [WordPress] How to compare salted password

Hi all,

I need to compare a specific password with all password stored in the
database. I know that WordPress uses MD5 to cypher passwords but uses
also a salt, so I can't compare my specific password, after MD5
cyphering, with the stored by WordPress one.

Which is the salt used by WordPress to cypher passwords? How can I
apply the same salt for comparing?
