Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am looking for a way to find out if specific files are genuine. md5sum.txt should be on the ISO-CD but I didn't find a location to download it seperately for the current version.

The system is a 10.4 LTS ubuntu server with applied security patches and I like to check specific files which were mentioned by a recent rkhunter run to be suspicious (core process and user management files = top, ps, sudo, sysctl, kill and others)

Where did you obtain the iso? The person who made the iso should provide the md5sum. –  bodhi.zazen Mar 29 '13 at 17:37
I got the ISO fro the ubuntu site, but it's of no use because of three years of applied security patches and added current packages - so i'm looking for md5's of current versions. –  zx485 Apr 1 '13 at 13:31
