If you decide to use use one of these mirrors, please be vigilant and verify the MD5 checksums of any files you download match MD5 checksum in the release notes for that version. Obviously, you should also verify that the release notes are from a trusted source. We have no reason to believe that www.ruby-lang.org was compromised (it runs on completely different hardware than ftp.ruby-lang.org) but it’s worth double-checking the release notes against the oldest version you can find on archive.org, just to be safe.
