That was a good blog. It can never be said enough that users should NOT use sites like download.com to get applications but should always go to the vendor's site as that is where it is least likely one will get infected from a tainted download. Plus, as the blog points out, the official host site/vendor's site will react very rapidly if made aware of a problem, whereas, mirror sites may not...especially those that mirror without permission. If users would stop using sites like download.com maybe sites like it would disappear which would be good.
