    Default Bad Checksum


    I don't know whether or not this would be new or undetected malware but I ran an update this morning and got something peculiar. What does "Bad checksum" mean? It's in the Grail update. Although each detection rule is marked in green there is an X next to them. Usually, I run updates, if Spybot doesn't have anything new to install it will say "No new updates found", so I wonder what this is about.
