    Question Is there infomation supplied to verify a Downloaded Ubuntu .iso for security ?

    Answer to this Question is at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1769655

    I searched for the first thread I started and could not find it so I posted another But later By going through page by page in the General help Forum I found the First post.I searched Using my User Name and did not find the post post made for this problem.Still the search using the User name does not return the first post or this.

    here is the page where they post their hashes

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes

    You need a MD5 tool to match it up

    I was able to find the MD5 checksums through the "Alternate install" link on Ubuntu's download site. I had to go to the DVD download section though but at least you could verify a DVD download:

    Here's a program that will verify MD5 sums for you:

    This page is also useful

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM

    Was going to post the page on hashes, but I see I am too late.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
