    Europe means same rules everywhere, so yes, massive failure here from MA and PCF administrators.
    just one in a row of many, amongst others...

    still, there's the other thing with laws and such nasty issues. it's not only about creative bookkeeping and a still "very profitable product".

    Wasn't meaning to sound angry, just shocked (at MA, not at you). Using MD5 for password hashing is crazy irresponsible, and this has been well known for around 25 years now.

    As for your questions: MD5 always outputs 128 bits, and hashing functions don't have any maximum input.

    MD5 was never used in crypto currency, btw. It's too fast and too narrow.
    Ah it must been your forum picture that got me thinking your angry then, my bad.


    Actually I didn't write MD5 had anything to do with crypto currencies.
    But since you brought it up, RIPEMD-160 and SHA256 are used for bitcoin addresses.
    SHA-2 is susceptible to length extension attacks and SHA256 is a weak variant of SHA-2 algorithm.
    Original RIPEMD has collision weaknesses since 1996' so not entirely dissimilar situation to MD5.
    But people still use them for the same reason as any variant of MD5, for the speed and size.

    Regarding SHA-3 it has no known weaknesses unlike previous version SHA-2.
    Although, heard some are still upset at how the SHA-3 competition went......
    If concerned about SHA-3 (no known weaknesses), then suggest avoiding PBKDF2 which has known weaknesses.
    Agree that bcrypt is a good one, but there's also Whirlpool, Blake2, and scrypt.


    Anyways your reply to both MD5 lengths is correct.
    In the past I found half the people will answer the input length question wrong.
    And anyone can confirm that by decrypting my MD5 example in previous post.
    Don't worry no salt added, just use one of the oldest crypto tricks in the book.

    Have fun.

    i really wonder, does noone care about this?

    72% really should, and 28% should keep it in mind and check, where they maybe also used the non-salted data, or think about strongness of their passwords.

    btw, did you know that you can also check your password on haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords? it's maybe a good idea to first check, and then change your password anyways.

    personal suggestion: use 2FA whenever possible, and store passwords in an email draft of a free protonmail account (paid accounts well worth too!)

    stay safe, or become salty. u decide!

    Looks like nobody cares. This is where I am happy the email i use for this forum I use for nothing else and the password is unique.

    I thought Scandinavia was all about caring and transparency.

    People care but perhaps have little to add to the debate here

    I have looked into the matter and been told that there is nothing to worry about.
    Nothing to worry about?

    Fairly confident ur based in a sweden, fairly confident that EU law requires u to notify upon data breach.
    Failing to comply is actually a very very costly exercise.

    Funny how we have only had one comment from a MA official and nothing that is concrete in regards to what is happening....

    No notification in my Email Inbox
    No notification on this website
    No notification that the hole has been plugged
    No notification to all of us to change our passwords
    No nothing...

    Love your glacial speed MA

    Exclamation Your personal data might have been stolen!

    I know there was a question about this in section "about pc forum" but I guess people rarely go there, most of us just lurk General Discussion and the matter is serious so I believe it is worth to spread the message:

    Your personal data you use here, including IP adress, e-mail, e-mail password and username might have been stolen:



    If you use the password or part of it and username from this forum somewhere else I urge you to immediately change your password here and on other sites.

    Also, beware of phishing attempts. Someone may try to steal your sensitive information by disguising as a trustworthy. Watch our for suspicious e-mails!

    Just for fun, I quote MA official statement on this data breach

    Nothing to worry about? I don't think so!

    Check here if your e-mail was also breached:

    Without clicking the last link, it sounds glorious. Like how can it not be e-mail address stealing in itself?
