Probably one use of its search engine Google never envisioned. Steven Murdoch, a security researcher who runs the Light Blue Touchpaper blog, discovered that when he inputted an MD5 password hash into Google he got several hits with one thing in common.

"Because of this technique, Google is acting as a hash pre-image finder, and more importantly finding hashes of things that people have hashed before," said Murdoch.
