Specifics about what the hash breakages mean

This is a very good, simple Q&A about the recent controversy about hashes being broken (or not broken, as the case may be). This is by far the most simple explanation I've found about what this means for those of us who are not cryptographers, but use hashes every day. Think "digital signatures", "tripwire" and the like. Read it. Really.
