I don't know if it does MD5 checking or not, but I do know that bittorrent gets atleast a CRC but most likly a full hash from the original server, and it gets many different peices from many differient clents. The d ifficulty of the"hacker" of creating a file to match an original CRC is tough but not impossible. The difficulty of him matching a hash, is practicly impossible. And the difficutly of insuring that someone gets his entire file and not just a peice of it is insanly difficult.
