in reply to Hash order randomization is coming, are you ready?

As a side info:

Recently a friend of mine showed how to attack webservers running with languages which do not randomize hashes.

DOS attack with hash collisions (Perl rulez)

Perl was immune, and should stay ahead of fraud evolution.

Thanx for your work! =)

Cheers Rolf
