What is a reliable source for cryptographic hash values for Mozilla applications?

Update 1: the value from http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/latest/MD5SUMS, A344903A030EC2CA9630407C9736FE11, matched the output from md5sum (in Cygwin 1.7.1) on the downloaded file.

In particular what is the MD5 hash for the Windows version of Thunderbird 3.0.1? There is one listed at this site, but I think only the ones coming from a Mozilla controlled domain can be trusted.

Background: I have downloaded Thunderbird 3.0.1, but I could not control from which server. I would like to be sure that the file has not been tampered with.

  • Mozilla's Windows installers are also signed themselves - you can see the signature information in file properties. – grawity Feb 14 '10 at 18:29

On the mozilla ftp, you can find MD5 and SHA1 checksum.

If you need, you can also find hashes for other versions of thunderbird or any other mozilla softwares.
