Add hashing algorithms for generating checksums

#1 Post by Alien426 » 05.08.2017, 07:32

It would be nice if more hashing algorithms (SHA-1, SHA-256) could be added for generating checksums. Even though MD5 should not be used (citing Wikipedia below), it is still in wide use and should remain a choice in FreeCommander.

"The security of the MD5 hash function is severely compromised."
"Also in 2004 more serious flaws were discovered in MD5, making further use of the algorithm for security purposes questionable; specifically, a group of researchers described how to create a pair of files that share the same MD5 checksum."
