I can get 3.5 to verify, but NOT 3.6.2. So, either the packages are contaminated, or I'm missing something. The detailed instructions are here, Tor Browser-how to verify signature? and also on the Tor official site if you need them. They work, just not for me with v3.6.2.

Here are the details:

I downloaded from both the main download page and also from https://archive.torproject.org/tor-package-archive/torbrowser/3.6.2/ and, they all match ALL the hashes of each other.

[__] torbrowser-install-3.6.2_en-US.exe 08-Jun-2014 22:10 26M
SHA-1 = 0F1788F34F6C803025BB6F541C974DDA788DF09F

[TXT] torbrowser-install-3.6.2_en-US.exe.asc 09-Jun-2014 21:52 473
SHA-1 = C5DB2F8EA8305472C750F452D19F7C4DF9006D0C

Running the checks, here are the results, and failed end result:

Also, here is the identical syntax used in v 3.5 which DOES verify!

ALSO -- Here's the ASC file text for the 3.6.2 bundle:

After emailing with support, they pointed me to the new version, 3.6.3 that came out today. And, THIS version DID VERIFY!

So, 3.6.2 is still suspect in my book.

Version 3.6.3, which was released July 25th, 2014, at 2130, verifies just fine using the strings in my post above, just by changing the username and the version, (and verifying the path).

You can download at the SSL site at one of the two links:

Easy for Windows

All versions, languages, and OS's of 3.6.3
