Re: MD5 hash cracking service

Interesting, since MD5 hashes are supposed to be "one way", are they not?

I've often discussed setting up an "online cracking service" (think Alex
Moffet's crack seriously networked a la Beowulf with a Web interface).
Aside from the technical challenges of setting up and maintaining such
a project, the obvious issue, from a security perspective, would be trust.
For example, if I know that Alice connected from and supplied 
a hash/password, and I retained the unencrypted hash/password, would I
not now (potentially) have access to "something" (maybe accessible, maybe
privileged, maybe not) at

Still, bravo to you for setting it up :-)

I've set up a quick website and system to crack md5 hashes online using Rainbow tables. The project is using 
RainbowCrack and currently ~47 Gb of tables. At the moment it can crack hashes of lowercase letters and/or numbers up 
to 8 characters long.

The cracking service is free
