MD5(1) hash algorithm is reported to be compromised. This fact known in theory since 2004 has been undergone aproval on the 25th Annual Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin, Germany. MD5 is now considered harmful!
Manpage of md5(1) should have a note on that, the line "... MD5 has not yet (2007-03-05) been broken..." should be corrected.
