Does anyone have time to check the forge distfiles to see if they've been altered maliciously?

I see this in some builds:

          - 2e0a24648c55005978d4923eb4925b28 [expected result]
          - 0f4f7cf8741d98cb419e45cc69962600 [actual result]
        This may be fixed by running `opam update`.

and the below spyware warning is very concerning indeed.
