Identify a file getting from another place

If you get ClamAntiVirusDaemon via another place, we recommend identification of it. ClamAntiVirusDaemon is released under (GPL). So any one can customize and release it. But Someone may released customized it as original one. In this installer require administrative privileges of your system. So this installer check its privilege, then it install under administrative privilege. If someone evil may attack your system. If it's our original version of ClamAntiVirusDaemon, you can check our all source code in this place.

If you want to identify as original, you need to go to this link of the release file list page again. It shows that the check sum strings: some alphabet-numeric string in the same file name of your file. This is a hash value of MD5. If you get the same MD5 hash value from your file, your file is identified. To get MD5 hash value from yours, some UNIX command is needed.

openssl md5 full path name of yours

For example, if you put ClamAntiVirusDaemon-1.1.2.dmg on Desktop under your home directory, Please type on some terminal;

openssl md5 ~/Desktop/ClamAntiVirusDaemon-1.1.2.dmg

You'll get some result, like this:

MD5(path name of yours)= 5c2a3ce8990e9d085ba1a75296ebdbaf

Is this result alphabet-numeric string "5c2a3ce8990e9d085ba1a75296ebdbaf" (not include = character and some before string) the same as MD5 hash value written in the page of the release file list ? If you so, you can identify it as original.

But you have to visit download page to identify it, so you can download it directory. Is this way no sense ? This way is useful for checking to download it successfully and in no FTP case in your LAN.
