A couple of things to note from mr schneider's blog warning...

His name is Schneier, at least show some respect?

Read my other reply for apology for typo, 'nuff said...




Fact..until it's published and the method handed out and it's 
replicated
independently, SHA-1 is NOT broken.

Fact..the people posting here missed a fairly important bit of 
schneider's
blog-post, and I quote:

The paper isn't generally available yet. At this point I can't tell 
if
the attack is real.

read it again:  >>AT THIS POINT I CAN'T TELL IF THE ATTACK IS REAL.

What I understand from blog, is that Schneier has this paper on his
hands and currently is analysing it. Yes, paper is not publicly
abailable, but he has it. Schneier is very reputable and i'm sure if
he already put a such of warning on his blog, he had every possible
reason to do so.

The "At this point..." are Schneier's words...not mine...did you read it?


Of course you and I don't put up tomorrow such a attack, but this is
not a real issue. The real issue is possibility and credibility -
trust.

all the best,

W.
