Thanks for reporting this.

How do you know for sure that it's this guy who caused this?

Thank you.

I sent a removal request.

In addition to jdownloader.com, there are many other confusing domains. I guess that means the product is popular enough that people want to confuse our users.

@ remi,
Because he said he had done it.

I dont for sure, but he said he would report it to security sites etc and someone posted on the site about jdownloader.com and .org at the same time. so must have been someone that didn't realise the difference etc.

I just downloaded the installer from .com because the installer in .org disappered and i checked the step and all it does is download the zip from .org and extract it to program File and add shrotcuts to Desktop
ans the run the jdownloader.exe and so on so it might be off help also the desing of the languages is better

The installer from that site, installs a toolbar that will make you search in
http://search.conduit.com/ResultsExt.aspx?ctid=CT2619605, for getting conduit.com revenues.

More info about the site:
http://www.dondominio.com/buscar_whois/?domain=jdownloader.com

It uses social networks, but mainly facebook and taringa, to spread the site:
http://buscar.taringa.net/posts?q="jdownloader.com"
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jdownloader/132403040131749
http://twitter.com/jdownloader2010
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-0a6g5_2_w

Author(s) speaks Spanish, and this is the community where jdownloader.com is best spread as the official site.

----

We need the spanish speakers spreading jdownloader.org, specially in taringa,
Email the hosting company, www.dondominio.com, asking the suspension of the site.

Email the hosting company . . .
Coalado has worked hard to get the jdownloader.com domain under jdownloader.org control. Contacting the hosting company was one of the first steps.

But, that explains why people think there is malware in JDownloader, the .com installer does.

A year ago some people suspected the Kikin plug-in.

A recent thread "0.9.334 Fresh Install - KIKIN plugin" mentions it in an installation issue. I've discovered other threads with installation issues mentioning Kikin.

In the German thread "lädt JD einen Trojaner mit dem Onlineupdate?" and the English thread "Trojan on 0.8.821 version ?" coalado and Jiaz respectively refer to further info on Kikin. Both threads were created by Avira customers.

No wonder that other people might have issues with this plug-in.

Removing this plug-in from jD might solve the problem once and for all, but then some revenue for jD might be lost.

Default Let people biliv this is good site

Hi,

I am new here. I heard that JDownloader is a good downloader. Then I want to try it. I googled it. It gave two sites .org as well .com in the result ( I ignored rest).

.ORG :
when I tried to download, you are giving UPLOADTO linkx). the file size is around 15 MB and file name ends as KiKKIN or so (which I donno what it is). I felt very strange as you haven't used your own server and u have used a file sharing host.

Then I went to download.cnet.com where I could not find JDownloader. (Usually I biliv cnet for spam free and safe downloads).

Then I checked the links Who wrote about us? where i clicked on http :// jdownloader.uptodown. com/en/ it has download at another sharing host HOTFILE, and hotfile removed this software:huh:.

Then I checked http :// www .brothersoft .com/jdownloader-171166.html , where the file size is 26 MB.

I went to softpedia, where also file size is 26 MB, but the differed "JDownloader 0.9.579 Brain".

versions number are same or similar at softpedia,brothersoft and softonic where as your site news blog says version 0.7 released (found in google):outch:.

.COM :
The .com site download links seems not working at all or my ad-block+ might have blocked.:w00t:

:confused::w00t:
Here my point is where is consistency ? why there is this much confusion? why there is difference in sizes of the files ? why dont you requsted CNET to include JDownloader in their list.

Sorry if I asked too many questions or if I should not ask but I felt its better to bring these cases to your notice so that u can correct and avoid confusion to users and increase your reputation:):rolleyes:.

Note : I tried windows version to download.

I think the jD.org Team don't want to use their servers for hosting their program, because every download costs them bandwidth and money. Their servers are mainly used for updates, software development and this board. This means that cnet.com and other specialised software sites can't refer to jD.

I've advised the jD Team to use a clear version number (and OS) in the file name of the download. I recently asked to publish an MD5 hash string so that everybody can verify the downloaded files. I advise them to publish the file sizes as well.

Jdownloader.org is our Homepage. The .com does not belong to us but we try to get it back, but that's not easy and maybe impossible. There are also some other domains which do not belong to us.

Use Jdownloader.org!

Remi is right, we use FileHoster to host our Installer, because we already have enough traffic and bandwith usage just with updates and ipchecks and so on. Hosting the Installer ourselves would be impossible to do it for free.

I will talk to coalado about better names for the files and hash lists.

Difference FileSizes/Names...Thats easy. Everyone tries to make profit with JD, so many ppl host/distribute JD themselves or spread links to their own links. They also change the Content of the Files (thats why a hash list would be good idea).

Jiaz, maybe talk to him about posting it on SourceForge as well, that would make a lot of people feel better about downloading it there, plus you would have mega bandwidth. I have several projects there, and it works well.

At the moment we dont want to use many hosts. Every additional host means more work = updating, checking, uploading and so on.

Yep, I agree. I dont know that you need to pay to cnet for adding this there.

I worried about reliability and trust. You may be right every one want to make money, but softonic and brothersoft were mentioned in your site only and they also have different size.

Its ok you don't bother about this and your reputation

I know you do not want to use many hosts, but using SourceForge.net (sf.net) would be better than any of the storage hosts. SourceForge is the unofficial home of open source. Almost all of the projects that do not host their own downloads use SourceForge.

The biggest advantage is that SourceForge is essentially permanent. The problems with storage hosts dropping the files would disappear.

Only Major revisions would have to be uploaded there. A zip of the matching source could be saved there. Any utilities and approved 3rd party addons could be distributed from there.

They even have an SVN server and other support for projects.

I have downloaded and installed Jdownloader from jdownloader.com, after just 4 days anyone have stolen my megaupload, fileserve end all my rapid points from rapidshare. I never say if the problem is jdownloader dowloaded from jdownloader.com but I suspect yes. At this moment i have recovered only megaupload, for fileserve and rapidshare i attend a response.
