How safe is an MD5 hash of a plain password?Posted: February 26, 2015 | Author: ThomasPowell | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: md5, security | Leave a comment »
First of all, I hope that you’ve moved beyond MD5 hashes and hashing passwords by themselves, adding salts, etc., but I do recall systems in which an MD5 hash of a password by itself was “good enough”.
You can look up some md5 hashes on this md5 cracker page. I found many two word combinations that were crackable.
You can play with generating md5 hashes of questionable passwords (such as your name and p@ssw0rd) with this md5 Hash Generator
