I am a bit new to this, but here goes. I need help on developing an application or simple script in asp.net which basically checks the md5 checksum of a file (my web application) and compares it to the original and alerts me of any changes that have been made ie defacement.

Please i will be very grateful if anyone could help.

Dim myMd5CheckSum as String = System.BitConverter.ToString(System.Security.Cryptography.MD5.Create().ComputeHash(IO.File.OpenRead("c:\windows\explorer.exe"))).Replace("-", "").ToLower()

Replace c:\windows\explorer.exe with your desired filepath.
