MD5 hash wrong for many files downloaded
« on: January 10, 2015, 06:49:07 PM »
If I download a ISO or Exe file in Win 8.1 with Avast, surely the MD5 hash file is wrong.
This happens with many Linux ISO images, Windows ISO from MS Technet or a simple PAF file from PortableApps.com and this happens with a direct download, using a torrent file or a download manager.

Instead, if I download the same file directly from a Linux partition I haven't errors.

Is it possible that it is Avast to damage the files?

Thanks in advance.
