HashCheck Shell Extension Comments

A checksum tool have NO checksum on it's page and not digitally signed.

about HashCheck Shell Extension · · 1 Helpful

This tool is used to verify a file is original, by calculating md5 / sha1 etc

yet on it's own webpage,

NO md5 / sha1 for THIS program itself is given.
The program is NOT digitally signed.

It's like an insurance sales who him/herself don't buy an insurance.

ironic.

SHA256 checksums have been provided with every release for at least a year by the time this comment was written. Since September 2016, binaries are also digitally signed.

It should be noted that, unlike the digital signature, the checksum does not ensure any trust or integrity. Seeing as you get the hash file from the same source as the application itself, if one was compromised, then so would the other. The checksum can help detect transfer issues or file corruption, although that is very unlikely to happen to a 500 kB installer. Which, more importantly, comes as an LZMA-packed NSIS installer, and as such already contains a checksum self-verification, so the hash file is largely redundant.
