    Create your own MD5 collisions

    A colleague of mine recently posted a link to this 2015 article on Create your own MD5 collisions and while this is hardly news, and so I haven't bothered to see if the instructions still work, I thought I'd share it both because the sample result looks like it could be fun and because of this remark:
    I promise it does not mine bitcoins in the background although thinking about it this would be a good scam and I may introduce this functionality.

If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Funny thing is just how prevalent MD5 is out in the wild, even after so many years of being exposed as completely broken. This library, for example, is a dependency of a whopping 150000+ repos. Wow!
