Funny, Joe the Blow Asswood didn't mention anything
about needing any "source code" to crack the messages.

Certainly. Assuming a common passphrase length of around 20 characters, and
assuming it is English, this will have 20-30 bits of entropy, MD5 will be
enough to uniquely identify each of these, and MD5 can be effectively
reversed under these circumstances in under 1 hour. This will yield the
entire original passphrase, leading immediately to a complete compromise. So
1 hour.
