[Aptitude-devel] Bug#451137: "aptitude update" succeeds despite hash sum mismatch, etc.

a) Did this just affect the command line "aptitude update" or also the
interactive "u" (well I guess so)?

b) Is the problem just, that I don't get a proper exit/status, error
message? Or were really (possibly forged) repo files added to the system
and subsequently possibly compromised packages installed?

I mean would have aptitude recognised is later that something is
fishy,... and stopped installation of packages or not?
