    Default MD5 sum doesn't match

    The MD5 sum mentioned in the download section of the Deamon Tools homepage doesn't match the downloaded file.

    I retrired several times on several days with both mirrors and always the same result.

    Is the provided MD5 sum wrong or the downloaded file?

    Which file you downloaded and which MD5 you have calculated?

    I started on
    http://www.daemon-tools.cc
    ==> Downloads ==> DAEMON Tools ==> DAEMON Tools Lite
    This forwards me to
    Disc-Tools.com - Published Software Download
    Then click on Download.

    Download link was:
    http://mirror9.disc-tools.com/getfil...n4301-lite.exe

    I calculated MD5 from daemon4301-lite.exe with Totalcommander and got:
    7bf0801a88692df718fd976ae02943e5 *daemon4301-lite.exe
    On - THE DAEMONS HOME the MD5 sum mentioned is
    MD5-Checksum: 011DE6FE1D21AE1CF4540463CEA0D4CE

    Also the file size doesn't match
    Downloaded: 4.744.648 Bytes
    instead of 3572 KB

    You do have the correct file.

    I've also just downloaded the installer from the mirror sites disk-tools.com and Disc-Tools.com - Published Software Download. These files also have an invalid MD5.
    File properties from daemon-tools.cc:
    MD5: 011DE6FE1D21AE1CF4540463CEA0D4CE
    Size: 3572 KB
    Release date: Wednesday, April 2 2008, 20:35

    Downloaded file:
    MD5: 6f8512526037f588d4df497e7965a424
    Size: 4 743 112 bytes
    Release date: August 08, 2008

    A few issues here:
    1. MD5 does not match
    2. File size does not match
    3. How should downloaders know that the mirror sites can be trusted? It would be a whole other deal if the redirect pointed to download.com or tucows.com.
    4. This is the first time another site is used for download from the site. Download archive does not use a redirect.

    Is daemon-tools.cc hacked or what?

    ps. Don't get me wrong, I think that daemon tools is a great app, but this is something fishy here...

    It isn't hacked, not just updated so far. Will be hopefully done the next days (can't promise something).

    Since April 8th the correct checksum is:

    MD5 : 6F8512526037F588D4DF497E7965A424
    CRC-32 : BD6C4240

    it was already adjusted to correct value, but a database-update
    restored previous one. It's corrected now - thank you for notifying us
