    The proper way, according to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Md5) is to have a cluster of IBM p690 computers work on the problem for an hour. MD5 is used for encryption only, its not, for practical purposes, decrytable. There isn't a password that you can enter and turn it back into what it was. MD5 is used to turn data into undicipherable text that is then stored so that the actual string is never known to anyone. The hash itself is then used to compare other MD5 encrypted strings to see if they match the original encrypted string.

    You can't. A hash is a 1 way encryption. Unless you have a table or billions of hashed values, there's little chance of being able to decrypt it in a reasonable time.

    Also, if the data was salted before being hashed, it's going to be impossible for realistic purposes.

    Do you know how the hash was generated?

    I was really surprised when I yesterday read that MD5 was cryptographically broken: I thought it was still in the current generation. Looks like my projects will be using SHA in future!

    MD5 is a one way hash. In order to "crack" it, you would have to MD5 random strings for ages and try to find a match.

    MD5 is not that easy the decode, at least not with your computer.
    Just type the hash string on google, if it's a dictionary word you will know it... Well I did it for you and the result is nada

    md5 pwd may be guessed only with a dictionary attack. But, most of the times the method fails.

    Can't you read? Duh.

    Secondly, you will get more and better answers if you start your own thread. Hijacking threads will not get you the quality answers you want.

    There may be an easier way...

    Are you trying to recover your Wordpress Admin login password?

    If so, there's a far easier way to do it than to try to crack an MD5 hash. I just posted the method elsewhere here on DP.

    Using search will work, BUT ONLY IF ONE POSSIBILITY EXISTS. Otherwise, one would need to GUESS at which possibility to go with.

    The bottom line is that if you recommend something, it is common courtesy to point to it so one need not guess.

    Sorry, but there *IS* only one possibility.

    I wrote it.

    You do an advanced search using my username, and since I specified that I just wrote it, you look at the recent posts by me. Only *ONE* post will jump out, since the title is: "How to decode user password from wordpress mysql database"

    It really *is* simple. All it takes is careful reading, and knowing how to search.

    Since posts here are quickly indexed by Google, even a reasonably intelligent search of Google will instantly pull up the post. Something along the lines of "Khadaji decode mysql wordpress" works wonders.

    Indeed, this is PRECISELY the steps I took when I was locked out of one of my sites because I'd forgotten which password I'd used. I simply Googled for the answer.

    *MY* "bottom line", I don't presume a lack of common intelligence in readers... if you want to work with computers and programs, there will *ALWAYS* be times when you simply don't know it all - and have to go searching for the answer.

    MD5 isn't encryption, it's a hash. As such, it can't be decrypted, any more than "happy" can be "dried". A hash isn't in the set of things that can be decrypted.

    You can run a library against MD5 until you get the same hash, and that will work as the text to send to the program to produce the correct hash. But a hash can not be decrypted - since it was never encrypted to begin with. (Encrypting isn't "making it something different", it's a very specific process - a process that's not the same as hashing.)

    And, since MD5 can be collided, there's no guarantee that the text you find is the same as the original text, it's just A text that will produce the same hash. There may be many of them. If you need recoverable data you don't hash it, you encrypt it.

    Since a hash (any hash) is not encrypted, it can't be decrypted. You can collide it (find some text that creates the same hash), but there's no way to find out what the original text was.
