Summary0005781: SHA256SUMS.gpg file missing for VM downloads
DescriptionI downloaded the file kali-linux-2019.3a-vbox-amd64.ova from https://images.offensive-security.com/virtual-images/ directory

and the file SHA256SUMS from the same path, replacing the ova filename with SHA256SUMS ,
but trying to download SHA256SUMS.gpg from the same location resulted in a 404 not found error.
I assume I need to verify the SHA256SUMS file using the SHA256SUMS.gpg file in order to verify the .ova file.

Steps To Reproduce1. Goto https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-linux-vm-vmware-virtualbox-image-download/#1572305786534-030ce714-cc3b using FireFox 70.0.1 from Windows 7.
2. Copy link location for Kali Linux VirtualBox 64-bit = https://images.offensive-security.com/virtual-images/kali-linux-2019.3a-vbox-amd64.ova
3. Replace last path component kali-linux ... .ova with SHA256SUMS.ova then press enter, so that the
URL = https://images.offensive-security.com/virtual-images/SHA256SUMS.gpg
4. This results in "The requested URL /virtual-images/SHA256SUMS.gpg was not found on this server."
