<div class=Section1>

<p class=MsoNormal>Hi.&nbsp; I have a security-related question for Portage/rsync:
<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=MsoPlainText>If someone makes a change to a copy of a program (say a
backdoor added to apache) hosted on a public mirror, will the sync&#8217;ing
between the public mirror and the main rotation mirror determine that it's
corrupted (via 'bad' checksum) on the public-mirror side and replace it? <o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>Thank you in advance,<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>-john &nbsp;<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>
