    MD5 checksum is wrong

    So when downloading it only gives you one download option and that is 1.0, however in the name of the download it has 1.0.1. I know the checksum will show incorrectly if the download is in anyway incorrect but I was wondering if the checksum that we are told is correct on download is actually wrong. Because this is the second time when ive checked ive had

    For reference choosing download options I'm selecting
    Kali 1.0, amd64, official, gnome, iso, direct

    Please note the checksum on the download page is sha1, not MD5

    When I download with your options and perform a check, it comes back a-ok

    Code:
    eric@Mudvayne:~$ sha1sum ~/Downloads/kali-linux-1.0.1-amd64.iso 
    619b1ffb72b8c72fa341adccdf4ecbadedacec6e  /home/eric/Downloads/kali-linux-1.0.1-amd64.iso
    Please try the commands above and let us know if there are further issues. As of right now I cannot find any issue.
