I love image burn and I made the mistake of downloading from the mirror 1 link it gave me an exe to install I ran it because I have downloaded this app in the past. However, this one was a modified EXE and it loaded all kinds of crap and a couple adware programs thank god I had Avast that stopped all of it I just wanted to let you guys know whats going on. this is the offending link http://www.digital-digest.com/software/download.php?sid=470&ssid=0&did=1

 

 

Thanks Royce

As the primary mirror, I very much doubt the real download is anything but what I provided then with.

You've probably click on an advert which in turn has given you a dodgy version of ImgBurn's installer.

All of the mirrors replaced your original installer with a modified version since the size and checksum is different (the same on all mirrors) from the original hosted on Mirror 7

 

Seems they removed OC... as BetaNews states: CLEAN INSTALL! No OC bundled


You should not live in the past anymore!

Current supported version: ImgBurn 2.5.8.0 Get it while it's current!

Also, visit the site of: FIRMWARE HQ for drive update.

I sent them those.

The proper download link on each of the 3rd party mirrors should download identical files and they're all 100% clean.

I tested them all and there is no problem with the download links. The file is the same by checksum just the file name is varying.

Sure something is wrong with download links:

 

Mirror 1 - Provided by Digital Digest (Currently hosting v2.5.8.0)

Mirror 2 - Provided by BetaNews (Currently hosting v2.5.8.0)

 

Mirror 1  - 1097 MB Norton Security turned red more then 3 times until I stopped installation (browser redirecting to malicious site, unsafe scripts)

 

next I downloaded

 

Mirror 2 - 3030 MB

Installation went smoothly

'

 

Mirror 1 I clicked to but content appears to be wrong.

Thanks for a great software.

It's probably an advert.

The real link is in the right column of the box detailing the download.

Downloaded file name is SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe.

It pretends to install ImgBurn.

Size 1 MB instead of 3MB.
