Older Geeks distributing corrupted/compromised image

I tried using the link to the copy hosted on the Older Geeks site, but the sums didn't match. (None of the three sum types matched.)

I then downloaded a BitTorrent client, used that to get a copy and the sha256 sum was as-expected.

I just wanted to let folks know. If that site regularly serves corrupted/compromised versions it should probably be pulled from the list of mirrors. (I saw a topic from a few years back that mentioned a compromised version stored on that host.)

I will check with the mirror maintainer on this.

Thanks for the report!
