Exclamation Acquiring JSGME WITHOUT acquiring a virus? (please read everything)

Greetings fellow pilots,

I ask you please, read the whole description before replying as I've been experiencing some serious problems trying to get JSGME and its becoming very frustrating because it seems i cant get it without getting a virus

I've been trying to get JSGME by following the instructions of this popular thread about JSGME:

http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.ph...ighlight=JSGME
"The Ultimate DCS World JSGME Guide - If you use mods, you need this."

These are the two download links for JSGME from the thread mentioned above
http://www.gamefront.com/files/21681483
http://www41.zippyshare.com/view.jsp...hu&key=2423962

PLEASE, can someone tell me, why when i go on BOTH of the sites mentioned in that thread I get THIS virus alert??

its unbelievable, HOW can such a prominent thread be tricking people into downloading malware/spyware or god knows, rootkits of some kind?

can anyone assist me in getting the actual JSGME and not some virus? OR simply explain how you, yourself got JSGME so i can follow the same steps?

any help or advice of any kind is greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance

gamefront.com is a legit site and has been around since 2001. Chrome's virus and malware protection can be overly paranoid at times.

Here's the fun thing. I've just downloaded the installer from Invisibull's Dropbox AND from the Gamefront-link from the first post, and both files have the same MD5 and SHA1 hashes, meaning that I'm 99.9999999% certain that they have indeed identical contents.

Using Firefox, I also got the warning before downloading from Gamefront. AFAIK, Firefox uses Google's so called "Safe Browsing API", the idea being that they don't actually scan our web traffic in real time, but warn us if other users or malware scanners have indicated problems on the sites we're about to visit.

I wouldn't be surprised if Gamefront is riddled with so called installers that come with all kinds of unwanted crap. Hell, you can't install bloody Java or Flash Player without having to uncheck some bundled crap (like Google Chrome, who's Safe Browsing API itself should probably block downloading these installers because of the bundled crap... (*) ). But to the best of my knowledge, the JSGME installer is fine.

Anyway, here's some data for future comparison:
JSGME.7z
Size: 399,443 Bytes (can show as 390 KB or 391 KB)
MD5 Hash: ec9747fa22727593eb1cc64b01031066
SHA1 Hash: b880588d7441b169c1c706d1defa903ab11476ad


(*) IIRC, neither Java nor Flash Player currently bundle Chrome. But it feels as if almost every other Freeware-download does these days.
