That is the paper I wanted to use as a reference, difficult to find the URL for it though.

Subject: Reference for SHA-1 being broken

Well Wang's team has published a bunch of papers in 2005 and their initial results merely weakened SHA-1, while completely breaking MD-5. However this seems to be the paper which convinced everybody that SHA-1 had to be phased out in fairly short order:

Wang, X., Yin, Y.L., Yu, H.: Finding Collisions in the Full SHA-1. 
In Shoup, V., editor, Advances in Cryptology - CRYPTO 2005, 
25th Annual International Cryptology Conference, Santa Barbara, California, USA, 
August 14-18, 2005, Proceedings, volume 3621 of LNCS, pages 17–36. Springer, 2005.
