  • SHA1 pwned

    Hadn't seen anyone post this yet... apparently SHA1 has been rather thoroughly pwned:

    In an unrelated matter, the US Government has mandated that all federal agencies migrate away from SHA1 by 2010:
    45 5F E1 04 22 CA 29 C4 93 3F 95 05 2B 79 2A B0
    45 5F E1 04 22 CA 29 C4 93 3F 95 05 2B 79 2A B1

    Re: SHA1 pwned

    ok uhhhh....

    all i got out of that was that's how the encryption is broken...I'm lost on it though

    Edit: just did some google searches, namely AES (I work with that so to speak) and figured out what is going on with that now...

    or possibly destroying, I haven't figured that out yet.
