I'm sure I'm missing something very basic. md5 does not do unicode. So the special a in there is going to be the ansi interpretation of unicode.. the ansi characters 0xC3 and 0xA4 what I normally do is take a dictionary and then make sure I set the --encoding to not be UTF-8 but ansi.. when dealing with md5sum.. then the md5sum's of someone using unicode actually seem to come out. > Working from this @PastbinDorks twitter feed: http://t.co/DE3rWS2x.

For one, using base64 to encode and then decode does not result in mangled text as that article demonstrated - on my system, anyway.
