Cannot download because of phishing URL

Postby DimmY on Mon Jan 25, 2010 10:26 am

I cannot download the latest version of FPV because Kaspersky AntiVirus (KAV) complains about phishing URL (http://bit.ly/FPVPro32). What the mess?

The URL works perfectly fine (and it obviously legitimate). If some product that you use blocks it, then you should try reporting it to the publisher of said product...

You can also download a zip file directly from the download page.

EDIT: Kaspersky's answer:

Hello,

Sorry, it was a false detection. It will be fixed in the next update.
Thank you for your help.

You can use the direct Zip downloads in the meantime:

Besides that the move to bit.ly short URLs for download links was meant to increase download security: all downloads links are screened by no less than 3 different anti-malware systems: VeriSign’s iDefense IP, Websense Threatseeker and Shophos Antivirus:

Short URLs are also easier to share and easier to read:

http://bit.ly/FPVPro32
http://bit.ly/FPVPro64

They also make it easier to count actual downloads than digging down the web server logs.

Thank you, Axel. Now I'm not scared. :)

Btw (and once again): Russian translation for FPV needs to be updated. How can I do it? I wrote several letters to you, but no answer yet.

Yes I've been quite busy lately and translations lags a little behind the English and French versions.

Ok, I see.
So, I'll write another letter to you with reminder right now.
