or have wrong file?

in attempting to upgrade png (due to security problem), we tried to pull from sourceforge mirrors.
(note below, libpng says file size for libpng-1.2.27.tar.bz2 with scripts should be 641193) heanet has a bigger file. other sourceforge.net mirrors have it right.

Was heanet.dl hacked? are some people downloading a trojanized version of png?
all attempts (in the past) to contact sourceforge had been useless.


Attempting to fetch from
http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/libpng/. fetch:
