v2.8.0 – Minor bug in “Copy” tab

It has been brought to my attention that with v2.8.0 there’s a minor issue with the “Copy” tab, in that if there are 10 files in FolderA, all ten are copied to FolderB without a problem, and the log files report that, but QuickHash's visual report shows that “9 files copied”, instead of “10 [...]

SHA-1 Hash collisions of actual files

A really interesting article here regarding SHA-1 hash algorithm and collisions. MD5 collisions have been known for a long time, and SHA-1 collisions have theoretically been around for a while too, albeit engineered collisions as opposed to accidental ones. Because of that, NIST have not really endorsed SHA-1 for a few years although their [...]

What is the newly added xxHash algorithm?

So with the release of Quickhash v2.8.0 (arguably the most significant release of the program since v2.0) came the super fast xxHash algorithm. Many of you may be wondering what it is and why I added it. But I also know many of you who use QuickHash are probably "hash enthusiasts" who always like [...]

v2.8.0 is in development

I've had a little time lately to work on implementing some things I've been meaning to implement for ages. First and foremost, there is the new hash library. For some years I used DCPCrypt, but that had several shortcomings, not to mention the fact that I had to adjust the library myself for 64-bit [...]

v2.7.1 is on the horizon

v2.7.1 is being developed. A few minor issues cropped up with the release of v2.7.0, which was not unexpected as I reported in my earlier post. One notable issue is a permissions issue with the creation of a settings xml file that was added with 2.7.0. As it turns out, there's a bit of a [...]

I am proud to announce that the up-and-coming rising star Linux distribution of the moment....Parrot Security OS, now included QuickHash v2.7.0! One of the developers was very helpful in including it and I'm really very pleased. Getting a software tool into a mainstream Linux system is a big deal. Before Parrot, Quickhash was included [...]
