md5?

md5, really? sha256 surely if you want to be sure. The perpetrators could even spoof the 'right' md5 - I'm surprised that they didn't. Though if mint think that md5 is good enough perhaps that explains how they were hacked.

Perhaps I'm just incorrigibly paranoid but I always check the hash from differ went sources before I install something.
