SHA1 Broken?

SHA1 Broken?  See here.

Here is a nice table of hash functions and attacks.

Sam makes an interesting point.  We probably don’t have to worry about this too soon..

"Dougal, put another way: an uncracked MD5 gives you 128 bits of protection.  A "broken" SHA-1 gives you 160-11=149 bits of protection.  That is still 2,097,152 (2**21) times more secure than MD5.
