I thought this might be a useful read, since it mentions amazon's cloud and how it can be used to crack passwords.
"The exponential growth in computing power described by Moore's Law and the advent of massive pools of elastic computing power in cloud based pools like Amazon's EC2 have broken down the walls that used to make passwords protected by hashing algorithms like SHA-1 and MD-5 all but unbreakable."
A good reason to block any of your password-protected sites from amazon-based bots. Sooner rather than later now the bot may turn out to be a cracker. And to uprate the password encoding, of course. :)
