    Default invalid hash on files updates4.safer-networking.org for Hijackers & Trojans update

    **Note - in repeated update attempts I found that the sites updates1.safer-networking.org and updates3.safer-networking.org seemed to have correct hashes

    btw, bad hashes on your downloads is a real red flag for network security... I've seen this error happen on Spybot several times now in the last few weeks. Please, please double check your work. Thanks!!!

    I just tried to update Spybot and it took multiple attempts to get all the updates with correct hashes. I didn't bother to check the servers that were causing problems, since Spybot makes this pretty difficult by not wrapping error messages that are longer than the window width.

    So it looks like the hash problems are still there, despite the messages elsewhere that this has all been fixed.

    several attempts failed - continue to update?
    without signatures complete, system scan does not work?
