MD5 hashes are commonly used among web developers who store usernames and passwords in a SQL database. This is so that if an attacker breaks into the website, he can't simply read everyone's password! The website hashes the user's password when he registers and stores the hash in the SQL database. Then, when he wishes to login, he enters his password into the HTML form and hits the "Submit" or "Login" button. The server takes the password he entered, hashes it, and compares it to the hash in the database. If it matches, he gets logged in, otherwise it fails. This hashing process makes sites much more secure, but with the correct utilities and training, about 98% of the passwords used across the Internet can be cracked within a matter of hours!!!
