From a Slashdot story that ran yesterday:

"Patrick Stach has announced the availability of his source code for
finding MD5 collisions and MD4 collisions. MD4 collisions can be found
in a few seconds (but nobody uses that any more), while MD5 collisions
(still being used!) take 45 minutes on a 1.6 GHz P4."


45 minutes... So, I guess MD5 isn't as safe as you think.
