Recent ASDM versions MD5 hash problems

All of the recent versions of the ASDM images on the Cisco website have the wrong MD5 hash when I download them. I was first alerted when an upgrade attempt did not work, now when I check them on the PC, nothing matches. All of the PIX images work perfectly. Is there something special about the ASDM images? What am I doing wrong?

Re: Recent ASDM versions MD5 hash problems

MD5 has a smaller digest and is considered to be slightly faster than SHA. There has been a demonstrated successful (but extremely difficult) attack against MD5. However, the Keyed-Hash Message Authentication Code (HMAC) version used by the security appliance prevents this attack. Refer URL
