Here is probably the most useful line on the internet regarding md5 collisions. I can't figure it out.

Dam that is amazing. I downloaded pack3.. the only thing that I noticed was.. that both generated files package1 and package2 had the same file size.. and the same md5! I checked it myself because I couldn't believe it. I used VisualBasic and created an empty form, then exported it to a .exe and checked the md5 then changed the project name from form1 to form2 and the md5 was completely different, so I would say that having 2 packed files both containing totally different files.. there should be a big difference too!

But then I downloaded md5tunnel.. and I didn't get what it's supposed to do.

And what can't you understand? The Answer to my Question?

I love this stuff.. but it is so complicated!

I think there are attempts for a better md5. What about the SHA1 algorithm. Is better since it uses 40-character hex string.
