comment How exactly is MD5 vulnerable to collission attacks?
Yes, but you can "fix" part of the document to be meaningful text, and then build a hash conflict by messing with characters which don't get displayed without affecting the characters which do get displayed. This is generally up to the method of generating collisions, but the methods for generating MD5 collisions are flexible enough to let you do this.

When you create a postscript document to make a PDF, not all characters are displayed on the screen. There are often many mechanism for including non-printable characters (like comments)
