Rogue Download Site

Post by Catcha » Fri May 08, 2009 3:19 pm

--- Phishing/Scam ---
The first problem is that they are offering free software (such as OpenOffice) for a subscription fee. The second problem is that the payment page is hosted on a dangerous site ( https://secure.signupsecurity.com ). The payment page's scorecard has a rating, but the main site does not. So I thought I'd bring it here for more ratings.

Main Site: http://download-new.com/
Payment Page: https://secure.signupsecurity.com/

More and more

More and more of these sites are popping up 'selling' freeware.
In the small print all they offer is very limited support, that's if you can get hold of them at a non-existent email address.
ripoffreport has cited many cases where user have been duped into 'buying' what they believe to be the full program only to realise that they have the free version and are paying for it as well as then becoming victims of credit card fraud.

There are quite a few using the v v ww and they are all used for phishing :-)
