Fake PDFCreator site

A quick warning:

On the SourceForge download page for PDFCreator, I just saw a Google Ad that looked like the button to download PDFCreator (only larger).

The ad lead to http://cn.pdfconvertersoft.com/, which describes PDFCreator, and includes a screenshot of it. Clicking anywhere on the page triggered a download of a file called pdf_converter.exe, which contains malware according to some virus scanners: VirusTotal

About a year ago, I found a similar fake download button in a Google Ad on the same page.


thank you for the hint, we will see if we can disble that link on sourceforge. They also have tried to place links on our google ads...

kind regards,
