This is the way HLUG and I caught the trojaned libpcap/tcpdump sources
on the home site a while back. (

MD5's were good on the mirrors, but failed when downloading from the
home site.

To be thorough, check the validity of the files you download from
multiple sources. Switch mirrors and then force a download from the
home site for that package and watch your checksums.
