I looked at that password list. Only around 1800 passwords were kept in regular md5, those are piss easy to crack (see http://www.md5decrypter.co.uk/ if you don't have a rainbow table setup already).  Otherwise you are fairly safe, provided your account is not one of those with regular md5 hashes (the ones not starting with $1$whatever are regular md5s).


lol, that is so I wrong.

I iz leet hax0r thanks to random interweb link!

Not bad, but what about those mining ops who have hundreds of cards? What if THEY turn to cracking?  Grin
Hail the emperor above!!!

I actually thought about this.  I took the top miners from various pools and compared their GHash rates to my own and figured that it scales linearly (it probably gets a better coefficient than I was giving it but I doubt it changes the order of the function).  Which puts the estimate at ~ 4 years.  That's assuming they are cracking my hash and only my hash (obvious the time increases by n for n hashes) .  To worry about my password being cracked in one month (i.e. P=.02/day) I'd either have to get the attention of 48 of these folk who own >$10K worth of GPUs or postulate that there's some mysterious person who has half-a-million worth of modern GPU equipment. (and all other permutations therein).  Probabilistically speaking I'd say I'm in the clear.......unless someone sics 天河 on me.

I'm rather good with Linux.  If you're having problems with your mining rig I'll help you out remotely for 0.05.  You can also propose a flat-rate for some particular task.  PM me for details.
