comment If attacker knows salt and hash, how is salt effective?
@figlesquidge since that answer is not directed at my exact question, can you please summarize into something like this so I can mark your answer as accepted: "It doesn't help much with the security of a single password, but if salts are unique it prevents the attacker from being able to check hashes against a large list of hashed passwords at a time. The attacker would only be able to check against one password at a time."
