    Somewhat glad to find that they correctly say MD5 still can be used for password hashing (such as PBKDF2) as some folks somehow believe using MD5 for that purpose is also dangerous.
    And we still can use MD5 for file corruption (not modification) check, though I don't see specific reason to use MD5 for even those purpose.
