For any idiot who thinks they got a Facebook password from that site: The MD5 hash of the "password" is actually the MD5 hash of the email address entered, except with a # in place of a @. For example, if you try to "hack" the Facebook account john@smith.com (which I did, just for fun,) you will get the hash b94f891d8a98c9b59f62a13d73c51513, which, as any 2 year old with a computer can attest, is the MD5 hash of john#smith.com. If you don't believe me, go to learntohack.co.uk and enter any email address. If you think you have the MD5 hash of a social network password, you are most likely an imbecile. Companies like that (hopefully) use more advanced systems than MD5 to store passwords, and there is no such thing as a Facebook autohacking tool anyways. Good day to you all!

Nice finding. Didn't know they store it like that.

Thanks. Whenever someone gives me a hash that they "hacked from Facebook" to crack, I just ask them which email address they entered. Works every time
