Hi.  I downloaded the TAILS liveCD (tails-i386-0.7.2.iso) and the associated signature (tails-i386-0.7.2.iso.pgp) but I couldn't get it to verify.  Opening the signature with GNU Privacy Assistant (under windows 7) and the correct key (tails-signing.key) gives me an error: "Bad", as in the signature or the iso was modified.

Is anyone else getting this error?  Is this a known thing?
Alternatively, am I doing something wrong?  Checking the ISO has GPA tell me that there's no PGP data in it.
I really want to start getting TAILS running so I can play around with the whole 'privacy' thing.

Access http://tails.boum.org/download/, and carefully follow the step number three, has to work. Wink

Step three tells me to download the tails signing key:
and the correct key (tails-signing.key)

Then to download the signature:
and the associated signature (tails-i386-0.7.2.iso.pgp)

Then to check it with Gpg4Win
Opening the signature with GNU Privacy Assistant (under windows 7)

Which resulted in a rejection of the signature
"Bad", as in the signature or the iso was modified.

It doesn't have to work -- it rejected the iso as broken.

I'm wondering whether TAILS is broken or my download is broken, or gpg4win is broken, or any number of other scenarios.

Is it that I'm using GPA and not Kleopatra?
