It's pretty consistent and occurs every time I try "aptitude update" and on the same files, as far as I can tell. All started about 2 weeks ago, before that it had been working fine for years.

If I change the mirror, say use DE instead of US, I also get hash sum mismatch error in addition to 404 while running "aptitude update":
W: Failed to fetch http://security.debian.org/dists/wheezy/updates/main/binary-amd64/Packages: 404  Not Found [IP: 80]

W: Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/ftp.de.debian.org_debian_dists_wheezy_non-free_binary-amd64_Packages: Hash Sum mismatch
