New Online MD5 Hash Database

Thanks to Marcel-Jan who has posted a link in my Oracle Security Forum about a post on Slashdot. The post on Slashdot is titled "New Online MD5 Hash Database" and describes a new service offered by - (broken link) who now have an online database of over 12 million MD5 hashes and the relevant passwords.

This is an interesting idea. The commercial usefulness is dubious as any commercial company is unlikely to submit their password hashes to a website, or maybe some will! - This is not an Oracle database password hash check but it is not inconceivable that this sort of online service could be started for Oracle password checks.
