http://forums.fedoraforum.org – hi, i'm new here. Just downloaded my first file and wanted to verify it. So i looked for the md5 ... and couldn't find it! So i searched and found that someone else had asked the question in 2009. The answer given was: Fedora doesn't use MD5 checksums any more because of the weaknesses found in the algorithm Am i not right in saying that it was only a theoretical weakness that was found? And that this "weakness" is still more than 10 times less likely than a DNA match? (HowTos)
