Default Beware

Went to this site to download ODIN and got completely shafted ended up installing a shed load of crapware which hijacked my browser and loaded my cpu with no warning whatsoever. Managed to do a system restore so hopefully I'm back on level pegging. Would really love to meet the a@@hole who thought this was a good way to make money.

Yeah this C@CKSUCKER got me too, what a F*G (not that there's anything wrong with that). I think these are all his sites:

probably more. I ran siteadvisor (no info), avgthreatlabs (no info), and virustotal (only a few hits for malware), and was surprised to see it not flagged as a dirty site. I rated it as malware on virustotal, but the other 2 sites would not allow me to flag it in any way, WTF?

Anyway, please be more careful than I was! Time to run MalwareBytes!
