This is really fascinating. Up till a few days ago if you put variations of the "Lorem Ipsum" text into Google translate, it would translate it as off the wall phrases, like "china, nato, sexy sexy" and other phrases related to the internet, business, and other stuff:

tortor ut = password
Here's the article. No confirmation, but someone may have been using variations on the Lorem Ipsum to pass secret messages.
