To be honest for some reason i got the latest.tar.gz containing WordPress 2.0 on Dec 27. The timestamp for […]

SHA-1 Broken ?

Slashdot has a REALLY interesting article about SHA-1. It appears that SHA-1 is broken as Bruce Schneier says in his weblog [url]http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2005/02/sha1_broken.html[/url] I work in the PKI market for about 5 years.
