I've already admitted ignorance, but I don't believe that any of your computer's security software can help at all with an already-cracked password, since that's something completely outside your computer.

How can it work in one direction but not the other? If the LeakedIn tool can take in a password and output a hash, then doesn't that by definition mean that the encryption system is public knowledge, and hence the hash form is readily decryptable back into the original password? My knowledge of cryptography is (obviously) pretty small, so I'm still confused.

Can someone explain the difference between leaked and cracked? If a password has been leaked but not cracked, does that mean that it has become public knowledge that the password exists (eg, having "123456" be leaked is basically meaningless), but the password has not yet been connected to a particular account? If not that, then what?
