    Thanks for that link oofki, I have bookmarked it and will have a play later

    If the original hashes were salted, it would make cracking a very daunting task. If we are looking at multiples then it is mission impossible, without knowing what they are for.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    I mean even if the salt is KNOWN and so is the algorithm as well, lookup tables are useless, and if they were complex passwords, then yup forget it about it!
