comment BCrypt vs Key Stretching MD5
So what I'm pulling from comments and answers is that there isn't really reason the stuxnet crew used MD5 instead of a better password oriented hash.

comment Is it possible to distinguish a securely-encrypted ciphertext from random noise?
I don't think it is a given that an AES message can be brute forced. OTP is a perfect cypher because it cannot be brute forced. As brute forcing it would generate all plausible decryptions. Would brute forcing a short AES encrypted message also produce many/most plausible decryptions?
