    It's hashing function, not encryption. There's huge difference, and close to none similarities. Plus it was theoretically known since 2005 and deprecated since 2011, so no surprises here

    They spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to run the calculations to be able to do this. This is definitely small fish compared to CloudBleed which was just announced. Worse than HeartBleed from a few years ago by a long shot.
