Summary0006781: Kali Installer 64bit torrent file failing integrity check repeatedly
DescriptionThis came to my attention after trying to install to my laptop, the installer ISO was missing integral files and wouldn't complete validation within the install. I did an integrity check on the file on my main computer and it did not match, as such, I tried again. The same thing happened. The file seemed to be bigger than it says on the website, 4gb.
Finally, downloaded it on my browser, the integrity check worked and I was on my way.
Wondering if anyone else can reproduce this or if it was just a me problem, seems very weird.
Steps To Reproducetorrent the 64-bit installer file, then do a sha256sum integrity check. I was using the torrenting application transmission, yet this should be tried on other all the same.
