We take issues of this nature very seriously. All products on Download.com are downloaded, installed, and scanned for viruses and malware before being published in our library.
However, there's also a number of apps on Download.com that we list but not host. These applications have Visit Site button instead of Download Now button. Clicking on the Visit Site button opens a connection to a third-party site. Download.com cannot completely ensure the security of the software hosted on third-party sites.
If you believe that a product, downloaded from our catalogue, is infected, please, feel free to contact Download.com Support http://download.cnet.com/support/contact/
They will take necessary steps to reevaluate the installer file.
