You know, this kind of thing drives me crazy. I used to use download.com and I had a lot of trust in them especially since MalwareBytes Corp and many other security firms use them instead of using their servers (very lazy settups if you ask me), but I quit trusting them when I used them to avoid having to give information (name, address, phone number and the like), to a company for a free version of their product. (it was an XMPP server from coversant based on the microsoft .net Framework). I couldn't figure out why the download kept getting blocked, but it turned out that it was coming from NOD32, and according to NOD, the XMPp server download hosted over on CNet was a variant of Win32/InstallCore.C. Reluctantly I went to the vender's site, information given and all, and got the file from there. There was a difference in both the file name (CNet's had a double exe extension on it), and the file size. CNet's was equal to 444 K while Coversant's (the legit one), was equal to 4857 K.
