sp84442.exe

 

https://support.hp.com/soar-attachment/748/col63945-vc-203564-2-vc-203564-2_sp84442_releasedoc.html

The MD5 sum in the above release note is currently: 842dd5d52ce06833c1052cc19b29a580

The MD5 of sp84442.exe is currently: 282918473c32ca971152bd492a8ef0e0

 

There's a mismatch between the sums in the release notes and the sums of the downloads. I downloaded and checked repeatedly.

 

It might be worth mentioning that the MD5 sums of sp90243 and sp84442 were previously consistent with the ones in the associated release notes but they aren't anymore. Apparently they have been changed quite recently. The date and time of the signatures are: 8:25 AM 12/13/2019, respectively 3:25 PM 12/4/2019. Surprisingly, the numbers designating the softpaqs (90243, 84442) have remained the same. Why haven't the release notes been updated? How can I verify the integrity and authenticity of the downloads and how can I even assume that the firmware won't brick the machine if updated release notes have not been provided? Thank you.
