    advertising link above.

    so i clicked the 'easy money' link that is being advertised and i was just wondering if anyone has actually downloaded it yet and can confirm it's not a virus. why would someone have a download link advertised when they aren't getting paid for it? it's just wasted money. it claims to be a .pdf file but is actually a rar and when i tried downloading it, it was obviously much larger than just a pdf file, so i stopped the download. a keylogger // rat can easily be hidden within a rar file.

    did you guys confirm it wasn't a virus before putting it in the advertising spot? just have to confirm and ask before you get complaints about it.

    Also I can't even download it, when the timer runs out it just refreshes the page.
    Please press Thanks/Rep+ me if I helped you in anyway

    Plus why would someone spend money to put up a free tutorial? I have adblock enabled but unless there were a ton of adds it doesn't seem sensible to me.

    Oh that's actually not that big, RAR compression can give it that file size.

    It seems like it was removed now... Was it with bad intent or anything?
