Have you ever wanted to calculate an MD5 Hash of a web page? Well, now you can.

Before we begin, you might be asking why would I ever need to use an MD5 Hash on a web page?

The reason is simple: Check to see if a web page changes.

Why can’t I just compare two files?

You can do that; however, you have to keep the whole web page in your memory. Although this may not be an issue with one file, it can be an issue if you are storing many files. Also, it’s clearly visible at what state the web page changes. That means you can easily visually find where changes occur. This is sometimes a must to know if you are a pentester.

Juliar to the rescue!

Juliar now has a strong focus on becoming the #1 security language! That means you will get support for everything.

For this tutorial, you only need to know two commands:

md5  and fetch

  • MD5 commands as you may have guessed generates an MD5 Hash from the text.
  • Fetch commands fetch website text and output it.

As you may have pieced together, you can try something like:

*md5 *fetch www.google.com**

That’s it! You just generated the MD5 hash using a website page.
