Has anyone else experienced file corruption when downloading from About half the files I download from are corrupt and will not open. I don't have any problems when downloading from other hosts.

Any thoughts?

I tried VLC and even it wouldn't play them.

It looks to be deliberate corruption. I've opened several of them in a hex editor and the headers are all corrupt. Instead of being random corruption though, they are all filled with the following text: fuckfucklordshitballscrapfuckfucklordshitballscrap

Very weird

It must be related to the attack they mentioned in the email you posted. It looks like maybe they are restoring files. I have been able to re-download some of the ones that were corrupt and now they are OK.

Anyway, thanks for your help!
