What the.......? Downloaded and installed Odin from here and huge amount of viruses started installing as the "supposed" ODIN installed. Ran malwarebytes and it went crazy. This ODIN download is full of malware/viruses. Malwarebytes found over 60! Don't go to odindownload.com

Went here first but no download link and the thread is closed.

Does anyone have a valid download link?

I have never had to install Odin. It is just an executable.

Strange page which is not a official side for odin. Its copy&paste (texts can be found 1:1 here in xda), which didn't recognize the xda users who are involved and it is completly unclear who this page made. So, many criterias not to download anything from this page or using it.

Best will be when you also remove the link from the url here.

Service the site is still dishing up viruses
The odindownload.com site as of today (29th Nov 2014) is still dishing up viruses: I downloaded the odin "installer" from the site, ran it but recognised the signs and deleted the virus as it was trying to do nefarious things to my system.

FYI MalwareBytes detects some of the viruses in the package as PUP.Optional.SupTab.A, PUP.Optional.VideoDimmer.A, PUP.Optional.WPM-A etc.

The site samsungodindownload.com is a clone of the same virus laden page.
I've submitted both sites to Google as malware pages.

According to this, the site is hosted at RamNode and the registrar is Godaddy.

So to get it taken offline, email these addresses which are specifically for ToS complaints:
abuse[at]ramnode.com
abuse[at]godaddy.com

Just leaving this here...good luck
