Is VerticalScope going to replace MD5 hashing with something more robust?
Not sure, I hope so... I am not a cryptologist, but I know there's better options. And with an ecosystem as complex as a forum, with many 3rd party plugins, I don't envy the IT guys jobs now.
Btw we mods did not get any different, or advance notice of this. We basically found out at the same time, and know the same as y'all.
