New Utility – QuickHash
There’s a lot of buzz revolving around my last new utility, CryptoPrevent, and there are a lot of sharp folks out there who prefer to examine the file hashes of their downloads (especially with software of this type) to ensure that the download is actually what it is supposed to be, and not a corrupted or infected replacement. For this purpose, I’ve introduced QuickHash, a tiny utility to quickly examine a file’s hashes (MD5, SHA1, and SHA256.)
Usage: Simply drag and drop your downloaded file onto QuickHash.exe and it will automatically pop up a window with the three file hashes displayed. From there instead of visual examination you can easily compare file hashes by clicking the Compare Hash button, and pasting in a hash string to compare it to, you will be alerted whether or not your hash string matches any of the file’s hashes.
QuickHash is a fully portable application, and is FREE for personal AND commercial usage. As usual, I’m open to suggestion on making the app better. If you have an idea, drop by the forums and let us know!
