SHA-1 broken

Seems that a team around Google managed to hit the first SHA1 Collision, creating two identical SHA1 checksums for two absolutely different documents.

At current time, they took about nearly 7000 years of single-CPU and GPU calculation (12 million GPU years) – but we had similar high rates at first attack on PPTP. As we all know, in 2012 it only took 23 hours to attack PPTP due to faster computing power. Within a few more years of development, SHA1 attack might work in similar timeframes.
