Date: 2009-04-30 17:21:50 Users are cautioned about rogue ftp sites claiming to have OpenBSD. The best place to get OpenBSD is from an official CD set, produced in a secured location It has come to our attention that some ftp sites (ftp.kd85.com) which are not official OpenBSD mirrors are purporting to serve OpenBSD 4.5 at this time. We have noted that what is actually present in the 4.5 directory is not 4.5, but rather a late development cycle snapshot which they have moved into place claiming it is 4.5. While we have no problem with anyone mirroring OpenBSD for the good of the user community, we do believe that people who offer up the wrong thing are being deceptive and will hurt the userbase - particularly when the packages being offered up are not the release versions. please ensure you look at http://www.openbsd.org/ftp.html when choosing to do an ftp install, and don't be fooled by someone "phishing" for your ftp traffic.
