SHA-1 Under Pressure

I just read a news article regarding a demonstration on a modified method of attack against a reduced variant of the SHA-1 hash algorithm.

My suggestion, if you need more security, then start to use SHA-256 or even SHA-512. For normal usage, you can still use SHA-1 but may be not for a long time.

You can also read the know-how about the hash crack.

  1. hati2 juga pake md5, sudah ada collision breaker nya, masih brute force sih, tapi dah lumayan ngirit waktu…
    md5hash untuk 4 karakter aja bisa ditebak di bawah 1 menit, gila…
