For the life of me, I can not understand why there is nothing posted on the downloads page(s) for windows server regarding verification of the download.  Not even an MD5. 

 

This day in age we need more security, and the most basic thing is missing from what is critical. I understand MS does not like to use public certificates as they use signatures for their products.  However, that is AFTER the file has been downloaded, and opened. 

 

I'm trying to verify Server software.  This is mean to be at the center of business.  Why is there not more professionals demanding MS correct this problem. I know it's has been going around for a while, and I haven't had a need to download server software for many years so I had no idea of the change.  Can someone tell me where to find a file hash from the microsoft domain?  I have already seen 3rd-party, but those can not be trusted.

 

Frustrated!
