Following the Linux Mint security breach on Saturday, I was worried the XCFE 64bit ISO had also been compromised.
Windows has a checksum utility pre-installed, so I was able to check the ISO’s MD5 hash without thirdparty utilities. In the command line:
CertUtil -hashfile [pathOfFileToCheck] [HashAlgorithm]
CertUtil -hashfile C:\TEMP\MyDataFile.img MD5
Credit to Laisvis Lingvevicius on that!
I checked the hashes against: http://ftp.belnet.be/linuxmint.com/iso/stable/17.3/md5sum.txt .
Hope Mint is fun, as I’d gotten good use out of Lubuntu.
