An Online MD5 Hash Database

Posted by Xavier Ashe on August 24, 2005

MD5 Hashes protect a verity of content types such as in the case of
pass phrases, session ids, etc the logic behind it is that to compute
an equivalent of MD5 of all possible plain text would be a
computational nightmare.

This computational nightmare has been
brought one step closer to becoming an hackers’/crackers’ best friend
with the introduction of the “Online MD5 Hash Database“.
The Online MD5 Hash Database does exactly as it names says, stores in
excess of 12 Million different MD5 values and their corresponding plain
text equivalents.

Found on SecuriTeam Blog.

How good the engine you say? will it was able to crack this MD5 Hash
in near “real-time”: 1870a829d9bc69abf500eca6f00241fe (wordpress). How
did it do it? well it some user has inputted the word wordpress into its Hash database.

I
did the same for the words: security
(e91e6348157868de9dd8b25c81aebfb9), securiteam
(1d167077e74e969b9b7d34b2d901d697) and SecuriTeam
(0a6b8933fcc5ea8234d49769de76cddc).
