 Subject:  [Feature Request] md5sum check for Images
 Date:  Tue, 10 Feb 2004 13:53:23 -0500
Would it be possible to add a feature to m0n0wall that would do an md5
check on the image that was uploaded to m0n0wall before upgrading the
system?  Perhaps something that would check based on the file name that
was uploaded, cross-reference it with md5sums on the site.  If the file
was found and has a correct version, continue installing.  If the file
was not found or if the md5sum is incorrect, display a warning that
would allow the user to continue if they choose (for those people who
use custom images).

Or perhaps instead of grabbing from the site, allow the user to enter
the md5sum in after uploading the file.  This would allow custom images
to be verified as well.

I would give a stab at it myself, but I just don't have any php skills.
