  18. I gave two hashes to my friend :

    H1 = MD5(my password)

    H2 = MD5(reverse of my password)

    The next day he was able to tell my password.

    What do I infer from this exercise?


    Select one:
    a. My password did not contain special characters
    b. My password was too weak and guessable
    c. Revealing the reverse hash of the password
    is enough to figure out the password
    d. MD5 is weak and can be cracked
