Can I decrypt a password using the rainbow tables and remove salt from the encrytped string?  I know MD5 is one way but is it possible to decrypt salt md5 hash?

Hi Frank,

md5 is not an encryption mechanism, it is a one way hash function. Which means you cannot get a plain text back from the hashed value. The only way to guess the plain text from a hashed value is to put a test string through the hash function and compare the two hashed values.  Adding salt prevents the generation of identical hash values.
