Password hash lookup

Came across this site:

Rainbow Crack provide access to a huge db of hashes to common encryption and protocol functions (e.g. MD5, LANMAN etc) allowing the quicker retrival of plain text from hash values.

Im not too sure of its viability as a business model but what it does illustrate is the importance of salting hash values and considering 2 factor authentication.
