Website contains malicious advertisement.

Please see your website and notice that under the legitimate download link there is an advertisement (with tiny script indicating such). This is deceptive and malicious to your users.

bump. you shouldn't have advertisements on your download page. it is misleading/confusing to your users and opens the door for third parties to attack your users by tricking them into downloading alternate software. this is still occurring on your website as of this morning.
