Coming soon…v3.0.0…with SQLite technology!

Those of you who regularly follow the site may have thought things were quiet lately. Behind the scenes, I have been working hard on something I have wanted to do for about 18 months, and that is to convert QuickHash for use with SQLite. SQLite, as you probably know, is a very fast and [...]

Hashing Unicode Text Strings

In my previous blog article, I described the use of QuickHash to hash password strings for use on the various data breach checking websites.

Checking Hashed Passwords with QuickHash-GUI

I found an article recently that showed the use of QuickHash to check password strings and then using the resulting hash in one of the many sites that store hashes of passwords from data breaches. I then also found this article by The Register titled 'Crypto-busters reverse nearly 320 MEELLION hashed passwords' that talks [...]

Explanation of the current poll question

The current poll is asking users if they would be interested in a code-signed version of QuickHash. Of the votes cast so far, several people have answered with "I don't understand the question" so, I hope to try and make it clearer. In recent times, operating systems like Windows 10, Apple Mac OSX and [...]

v2.8.3 Removed from Downloads

v2.8.3 had a bug introduced that was not present in v2.8.2 or below and has been fixed in v.2.8.4. The bug related to the text hashing tab. Text was not being hashed correctly due to a change in the code that unknowingly had an adverse effect on the computed hash. Any user who used [...]

QuickHash v2.8.4 for Apple Mac OSX

QuickHash v2.8.4 for Apple Mac OSX is now available from the downloads section. It should hopefully just run when the app is extracted from the zip file, but you may need to adjust the security settings of your OSX system to allow it to run, as it is not signed. https://quickhash-gui.org/downloads/ In the future, [...]

v2.8.4 Released

Today I have released v2.8.4 of QuickHash. It includes only a few fixes but they are significant. See the Changelog for more details, but in summary, it includes several important fixes to the Expected Hash Value field in the "File" tab, and it corrects (reverts) a previously accepted change for the "Text" tab, such [...]

Problem with “Expected Hash Value” in v2.8.3

A user has reported an issue with v2.8.3 (https://www.quickhash-gui.org/bugs/expected-hash-value-report-wrongly-on-single-file-hashing/) regarding a peculiarity with the "Expected Hash Value" field. This field was added a while ago, but another user requested that if the expected hash value is pasted after the file was hashed (whereas it was designed to be input before the file was hashed), the [...]

v2.8.3 Is Out Now (for all operating systems)

v2.8.3 of QuickHash is now available for Windows, Linux and Apple Mac OSX users. This version should, arguably, have been v2.9.0 because, for the first time in years, a new tab has been added offering a complete range of Base64 decoding. There's lots more improvements too. See the release notes and user manual for [...]
