MD5-Hash.TXT on ftp.symantec.com

The MD5-HASH.TXT at ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/an... is missing today's DAT files.

Is this a common occurance?  I have developed an in house application that relies on the MD5-HASH.TXT file to verify downloads of the DAT files at this FTP location, and it is failing because the MD5 hash data for the following files is missing:

20121012-002-v5i32.exe
20121012-002-v5i64.exe

Can someone at Symantec update the text file, and elaborate on if this is the best method to verify the Hash of the downloads?

 

 

Quick Look Solution

It's probably generated

It's probably generated automatically. Maybe something went wrong with this process. I would continue to check periodically and put in a support call.

I've seen it happen before.

I've seen it happen before. But, most of the time, no one notices and it's usually resolved by the time someone does.
