a wrong checksum indicates several possible problems...

   malformed packet
   corrupted packet
   modified packet
   bad checksum formula

yes, some would say that the first three are the same thing but there are subtle 
differences... the first one is generated incorrectly, the second one has been 
damaged somewhere along the line and the third one has been modified somehow 
along the line...
