Decrypting NT passwords

If you have been in the tech realm for long, you realize there is a need to recover forgotten passwords. Normally this is difficult (as it should be), but I just found a shortcut.
The website http://www.md5decrypter.co.uk/ntlm-decrypt.aspx, has an online database of NTLM hashes and their accompanying passwords. Once you have the hash (via pwdump or other tools), just copy and past the hash into the site and viola!


Standard warnings apply. Many countries consider unauthorized access to computers illegal, so only use this process if you have a legitimate reason.
