Hi folks,

This RFC concisely describes known attacks against MD5 and
SHA-1 (which together are the ubiquitous hash algorithms
in current Internet protocols).

     Hoffman, B. Schneier. November 2005. (Format: TXT=26641 bytes)
     (Status: INFORMATIONAL)

Scary, but important reading.

Cheers,
- Ira
