Cracking md5 hash

Toddie's Avatar, Join Date: Jan 2010
Here is a question that maybe you guys can help me with.

Suppose a user frequents 2 different websites.
Lets assume that user uses the same password for both sites.
lets also assume that both sites use an md5 hash to encrypt passwords.

one site is not vulnerable to sql injection
the other site is vulnerable to sql injection.

If you obtain the users md5 password hash on the vulnerable website, and you "crack" the hash, would the "crack" work on the other site that you were unable to sql inject?

yeah because for the same string, its md5 hash will always be the same so it will work definitely.
