    PARIS AND ITS SUBURBS
    Hi,

    As i recently posted it on the wish list, more powerfull algorithm than MD5 are preferable for more security (changes files detection).

    This recent vulnerability corroborates this:

    This vulnerability concerns also all security softwares using the MD5 algorithm(IDS/IPS,anti-virus without signatures, Firewall application using integrity control like SSM, Sandboxes, Firewalls, Data integrity protections, authentification systems and so on).

    Best Regards
