Professionally, I'm a Site Reliability Engineer at Google. In previous jobs I was primarily a C++ software engineer working with embedded Linux devices. In my spare time (hah!), I like to develop video games.

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?
