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: http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/libpng/libpng-1.2.27.tar.bz2: size mismatch: expected 641193, actual 804821
