Default wpa_supplicant file shownig wrong password

the wifi key recovery app has been showing the wrong wifi passwords even though the phone is still connecting to the wifi networks . ive tried deleting the networks and connecting again but the problem still remains. i have also gone into the data/misc/wifi folder on my root browser and the wpa_supplicant file is showing the passwords incorrectly too. i was wondering does anyone know what has caused this problem and is there a way to fix it. i have tried deleting the wpa_supplicant file and re connecting to the networks. and i have also tried different wifi password recovery apps and the problem still remains.
thanks in advance for any help

Ok, here is my little trick. I don't know if it could help. If you have a cwm backup, just restore boot.img partition Or you could flash a custom kernel. your wifi key will be reseted. Because I did it a few times.
