There is no ending to security measures. You stop to take measures when they’re is no threat, not possibility of threat.

1. Crackers are not stupid to waste time to tamper source code to match the same  md5sum, it’s way too much complicated. And it’s very easy to notice. It’s easier for them to write a virus for autorun usb flash’s for other kind of users, not for slackers.

2. If the original coder can’t understand the difference in code after the tampering (I suppose  will be huge) whatever measure is useless.
