    Hey guys, I am having a problem with checksums not matching. I downloaded: kali-linux-2018-3-amd64-iso

    Checksum should be: 6ce4071c667082bc841789e5d812dbfd424758b333d78ca5de6eceb7c43f8dd0

    My checksum is:

    C:\Users\XXXX\Downloads\kali-linux-2018-3-amd64-iso>fciv -sha kali-linux-2018.3-amd64.iso
    //
    // File Checksum Integrity Verifier version 2.05.
    //
    6dc3e57177249f73492b9edb95d082d1 kali-linux-2018.3-amd64.iso

    I am also having the same issue with the Kali Linux VirtualBox Images. I downloaded: kali-linux-2018.3-vbox-amd64.ova

    Checksum should be: e04d717ff9d0fff8d125b23b357bcceaef2e8e3877af90b678fde5e1bf05e7e8

    My checksum is:

    C:\Users\XXXX\Downloads\kali-linux-2018-3-vbox-amd64-ova>fciv -sha1 kali-linux-2018.3-vbox-amd64.ova
    //
    // File Checksum Integrity Verifier version 2.05.

    Sorry for the delay. For some reason notifications stopped. That doesn’t look like a 256-bit SHA-1. Make sure you are using SHA256.

    Hi, I’ve got the similar problem.My checksum never match.I tried many times downloading different versions 32bit or 64bit of Kali Linux.Here it is one of the examples:

    I used FCIV

    C:\Users\MyPC\Downloads\KaliLinux>

    Correct checksum should be:
    7c65d6a319448efe4ee1be5b5a93d48ef30687d4e3f507896b46b9c2226a0ed0

    I cannot go further I’m just afraid I have got hacked iso.
    Many thanks for you help in advance

    Problem sorted out.
    For some reason Microsoft fciv showed me MD5 instead -sha256 as requested.
    Used MD5&SHA utility and now checksums matches:).Going further then
