Actually, you can change these passwords only manually. Encode some phrase with md5() and update the database.

For example, this PHP code will echo the MD5 value for the password "aha":

echo md5('aha');

Copy result to clipboard and update necessary record in database manually. That's all I can suggest for this case.
