free md5 generator tool – password maker

I was playing with some opensource code today.  The app tries to be secure when adding a user to the system.  When the new user is added, an email is sent off to their email address that includes the username and password.  On my localhost, I’m too lazy to setup a bunch of test email@localhost addresses, so I needed a way to figure out what the auto-generated passwords were for my test user entries.  I noticed that the app is using md5 to store the passwords.  Again, being lazy, I didn’t want to have to do “print” statements to show the md5 output.  So I created a little online tool that given any text, will generate the md5 string.  Then using my HeidiSQL tool, I just paste the new string into the password column, and viola! a new password for that user.  This way I don’t have to deal with email confirms and all that.

The free md5 generator tool is here: http://www.openstepmedia.com/tools/md5.php
