SHA1 Broken. Something to keep in mind.

Apparently Google has officially broken the SHA1 algorithm by finding a collision condition with it.

SHA-1, Secure Hash Algorithm 1, a very popular cryptographic hashing function designed in 1995 by the NSA, is officially dead after a team of researchers from Google and the CWI Institute in Amsterdam announced today submitted the first ever successful SHA-1 collision attack.

It should be noted that on some old UNIX OpenSSL.current only supports up to SHA1.

When I said, a server connected on internet is a serious stuff.
