The attached zip file(s) represents one VERY large and single file containing all file hash values we have gathered since 2003 which are known to be safe, trusted, known-good and non-threatening. More specifically, from the following grouped hash sets found within this website:
– All operating system versions (459+)
– All software and web applications
– All hardware drivers
– All MS Windows and Mac app store software
– All simulated “Gold Disks” containing MS Windows and MacOS operating systems with common software installations (office suites, Internet browsers, etc).
– Duplicate hash values were also removed intentionally from each grouped hash set for purposes of expediting computer forensic examinations, computer security and/or computer file analysis.
These hash values can be utilized to assist in the elimination of non-threatening files during computer forensic and computer security examinations (Computer Compromises, Network Intrusions, eDiscovery, Malware Analysis, etc).
Please note: We have removed all previously gathered US Government (publicly accessible) website artifacts including image files, multimedia files, office documents, etc, and placed them on our website as an ‘optional’ download feature.
