Does the binary file which is being distributed reside on the verizon

The fact that there's a link on verizon.com which causes this binary to
download doesn't prove that the binary file is on a Verizon server.

Well, the link resolves to downloads.verizon.net and that is most certainly a Verizon site. Verizon does not need to make any source available at least in regard to the BusyBox library, and indeed does not do so, since the case filed by the SFLC complaining of that practice was dismissed with predjudice.

Try the link yourself.
