Online MD5 Hash Database

On Slashdot I read that there is a MD5 hash database on with already more than 12 million entries (spanning 7 languages, 30 topics). With that apparently the average time to crack 5 hashes is now .04 seconds.  
Knowing what kind of passwords people usually take (car brands, names of children, names of fruits), it sounds linke a useful tool for hackers.

Oracle Security is easier if you design for it

Hi Marcel-Jan,
Thanks for the link. This is a qorrying trend for companies as it gets easier and easier to crack passwords. The key issue is that users and others who have passwords still do use dictionary or common words - or munged versions of them.  
At least this MD5 database cannot be used to crack Oracle database passwords.  
Thanks again
