    WinRAR seems to have 2 legitimate sites, rarlab.com and win-rar.com
    But if I download WinRAR 5.10 English 32 bit from both sites, the hashes are different.
    win-rar.com SHA512 3FBE9DFC067B7E5BAC66F9CC5576770AC680E840E7FCA0D93F0138D8E3211258746C0D94E3BE7B68513318AF206E2D3CC9553A3580168CF66AA5DE5A323C7C4F
    rarlab.com SHA512
    0C55511706D2216E375CE3A575C9EBF465B1E5289A8E86146FD70D76D308C5F91D16E44A938092A10367B1B59B998F7900FA38CDFE35FD8581AB467AE64ADC13

    Though both are digitally signed by win.rar GmbH.

    Interesting they would be different. rarlab.com is the actual official site. I believe win-rar.com is a reseller.
    -There is also a rarlabs.com that is the same as rarlab.com but in the past I have found it is not always up to date. The rarlab and rarlabs are registered to the same info as each other. Win-rar.com is not.
