Exclamation Can we please dump RapidGator?

Rapidgator is outright dishonest and corrupt and trying to install crap on your computer

Here is the thread this link came from
http://www.nudecelebforum.com/showpo...4&postcount=30

Everything is normal - it even asks me if I want to download CD_-_BT.rar, which is the file name. But when my download manager pops up, and thanks to my settings and certain software I use - the REAL name of the file being downloaded is revealed... CD_-_BT.rar.exe
I am not a noob at this. I know how to avoid "fake" download buttons. This was not an accident. This was an intentional file spoof on the part of rapidgator/ilivid.

In my opinion they have more than done their share to earn a spot on the unapproved host list.

Rapidgator has enabled a download manager for some downloads! People are false reporting files as "viruses". Originally the "virus" seems to come from the RG download manager. The problem is solved if you opt-out of "Download with Rapidgator's download manager".



Scanned the download manager:

The target gets infected with ADWARE (malware). Nothing serious but annoying.

there was some interesting spam other night (movie downloads) that featured the ever so growing UN-popular rapidgator, but on my investigation it was only available to PREMIUM users.
is the whole site a con or what, are the site owners spamming links with rapidgator to force us to pay for stuff that aint even legal lol

EDIT:--------------------------------------------------------
im gonna test this out myself for my own mind on it, see what happens.

Also, i do agree that most downloading sites like Cnet (very popular trustworthy site) now force you to use their 'download managers', they are indeed adware which is usually toolbars and shit. sometimes and i mean sometimes if you look carefully theres options on them which are by default 'checked' with tick....untick them, thats all i do then when you got the file you want run a good AV on your system just to be sure.
usually if i see anything too dubious i wont touch it with a 13,000 mile barge pole.

Simple fix.
thats it exactly, i just tried it (took me about 45mins to download ) by unchecking the box and played the file fine.
however there is sites out there like i stated in my other post, that force you to download the 'installer' or 'download manager' before you can download the main file at all.
as said here by ebbie and by me in other post, always look carefully on the page or installer for these checkboxes always checked with tick by default as is adobe and flipping mcaffe AV crap, if see them check them off then you should be fine

Yeah....

checkmark, no checkmark.....

this does not change the fact that they renamed their installer the EXACT same name as the file being downloaded. This was obviously done to confuse the person downloading

This is called file spoofing, and it should NEVER be tolerated.

EDITED for the geek-nazis:
this is a spin on file spoofing whereas here they are renaming the the actual download itself instead of just covertly re-directing the link.

I have yet to see another download host rename their installer the same name as the requested file

They are a professional company used by businesses etc too, not a fly by night who only services bulletin boards and forums.

Sounds like a little perspective is needed here.
Yes I know I would run into this, hence the screenshot. It is not consistent. Not all downloads have it - which is probably intentional. Users get used to just clicking the link without have to look for a checkbox at the bottom. This way they can catch even careful users off-guard. If your download manager is set to automatically open the download, you are fucked.
This is the third time I have run into this problem with Rapidgator within the last 2 months. I blew the first 2 other times off, but three? that's showing a pattern. And I gathered evidence of it. It's really hard to dispute. Look at it. Glitch? Get serious.

Now if people feel cool with it and decide they want to keep using it, well that's their call.

On a file posted by Titmus in these forums. Unless Titmus intentionally set it for only premiums, they pretty much made his entire posting pointless. Not the first time I have seen this either.

Titmus is gone, and any download that requires registration or a premium account will be removed if it is reported.

With several other download sites available, I too think we should just get rid of Rapidgator. It downright sucks.
