I have this MD5 hash of a link:


I only have this code, no other information. How can I crack it?

    That's not an MD5 hash. – grc Jun 30 '16 at 17:11

    John Deters and grc have already answered the quesiton, but I'd like to note that MD5 can't be decrypted, as any cryptographic hash function, MD5 is a one direction function. Through reverse tables you may be able to get a possible value that generates that MD5 but there are infinit values that generate the same hash – Mr. E Jun 30 '16 at 17:19

It's not MD5 (which is a message digest algorithm, not an encryption algorithm), and it's not even base 64. It's just ASCII encoded as hex. It contains


which is a link to an image of a bird. The image was uploaded by someone named MD5, that's as close as it gets.
