Am I dead…?? Is this what the gates of heaven look like? *ç*
By the way, a little off topic note:
I contacted support, and it seems like the virus problem wiht uploaded.net’s link is indeed caused a false positive virus flagging.
Here’s the answer I recieved from uploaded.net Support:
“Thank you very much for your feedback. We have had some reports of this already in the past and are currently looking into what might be causing these false flags. I can assure you, however, that we do not touch your files or attach any viruses to them.”
So it is officially safe to download stuff from uploaded.net, if firefox doesn’t allow you to do that, I’d suggest you to use a download manager!
I heard some of you guys couldn’t download lately because Firefox/Chrome found viruses in the uploaded.net download links, so I tried to download something myself, and at my surpirse, I’ve got a virus report from Firefox too. The strange thing is that when I downloaded the same file from the Rapidgator mirror, there were instead no viruses on it.
This leads me to the conclusion (whihc I initially thought) that the virus is clearly not in my hentai archives, but into uploaded.net’s download servers.
To think about it, the RAR archives I upload are password encrypted, so they cannot be edited by third-parties in any way.
Also, they mostly contain pictures only, and as far as my knowledge goes, I know that a non-executable/non-installable file (like a picture file) cannot contain a virus.
Yet, it is possible that uploaded’s download links will download a hidden autoexecutable virus file ALONG with my RAR archive. I’m sorry about the situation guys, especially for those of you who’ve got a premium account right now. I guess it’s not a problem with my links in particular, but with many of the links of all the people using this service. I’ll contact uploaded myself and see what’s the cause of this problem with them! What I’d suggest you to do in the meantime is:
1) Contact Uploaded.net’s support yourself and let those guys know of what’s going up. The more do this, the merrier.
2) Use the Rapidgator mirror for now, if possible.
3) Keep downloading from uploaded.net using add-ons like jDownloader/DownThemAll, AND make sure that you’ve got a good antivirus software installed on your PC, so that when the download gets completed the antivirus will take care of eventual hidden viruses.
