GData: An Online MD5 Hash Database

A very good reason to not use a single common word for your password; they are that much more succeptible to a dictionary attack: GData: An Online MD5 Hash Database contains over 12 million words/phrases and their MD5 hash sequences.

For example, e338bc584bd1c7f87b8a5bf70a3cf80e was easily "cracked" as buddy in just 0.0036 seconds, and 9095eae491e5c0c17a2ef89477393ec4 just as easily looked up as puppy. On the other hand, de7b21110b84f3b84bc47b09b6d9475f, or the hash of buddy puppy, was not "cracked".

I'm not sure if this effort deserves a 35f5b296537c9229765834b5d2f37b34 or a 3021e68df9a7200135725c6331369a22.
