MD5 algorithms proven ineffective for app signatures

Marc Stevens, Arjen K. Lenstra, and Benne de Weger have released their paper 'Vulnerability of software integrity and code signing applications to chosen-prefix collisions for MD5'. It describes a reproducible attack on MD5 algorithms to fake software signatures. Researchers start off with two simplistic Windows applications
