A question about MD5 and SHA-1 checking
Posted on 2014-04-24
Hi, not sure if this can get an answer or not. I have been reading some info on checking the authenticity of a down loaded file using a MD5 and SHA checksum utility. I downloaded a program from "Raymonds worldpress" and have run the utility against a windows server 2012 ISO file that i downloaded from Microsoft. It runs and gives me the results but here's the thing... How do i know that the results are as they should be? Should i be looking for the original hash results from in this case Microsoft.
I hope that this makes some sense and any help is much appreciated.
