    Hey,

    Since MD5 is no longer safe for encryptions, is there going to be a MD6 any time soon(probably not the best place to ask this)? Should I jailshell all my users just in case something happens?

    Cheers

    First time I've heard that. Where did you hear that MD5 was no longer safe?

    Yesterday's Crypto Conference. It's not bad yet, but it'll become risky in the coming months.
