I haven't heard for algorithm that creates hashes 88 characters long (except for cold fusion according to google, which seems incorrect btw). Am I on the right track?

BTW, how can I be sure I have correct data? It is a hash made of hexadecimal numbers with length of 88 characters. I tried with several images and this is what I get every time.
What makes me wonder is the line in the mission text: "In order to get this data you must brute-force the encrypted hashes you get in each step. To do this within the time limit you must write a smart brute forcing method, good luck."
I must brute-force every hash I get? Sure, I can try, but first I have to find hashing algorithm that outputs 88 characters as a result..
