SHA256 File Hashes for Files I Provide on Github

I want to do what I can to help insure people are not abused online by something I've done, so I'm going to publish here SHA256 cryptographic hashes for my releases and some source files.

Because this site is hosted on servers completely divorced from Github, the odds of this site and my Github account both being hacked is pretty slim. Of course, if I were to suddenly become the target of some skilled hacker somewhere, I guess anything is possible. I can't imagine that happening, but who's to say?

I generate the hash value here (at my desk at home). Then I post that string of numbers and letters along with the files I place for you on Github.

I post those hash values here and on Github. You can visually inspect them, but that is NOT all you should do.

After downloading the file, before running it, generate your own hash value. It is very easy to do.




Compare your generated hash to the one posted here:

These hashes should match what you see on Github, and they should match what you generated on your computer.

If they do not match, something is wrong.
