checksum (Solved)

Could someone clarify / explain the way checksum works. Would/could there be a way of malicious code be inserted (at a mirror for example) into a copy of an O/S along with a valid checksum? Or have I completely misunderstood?

Re: Hate to see debian login pop up

hiya, Are you able to post a picture of what you're now seeing. Hard to imagine that a debian logo would have come from anything other than a debian o/s / image. Have you installed LMDE3?
