Downloading WinSCP here is too risky

The correct download links are flanked on each side by malware. Geeze. I will happily donate when these malicious and camouflaged ads are finally eradicated. I guess there aren't enough donations so trickery is resorted to.

Dear darkindigo!

Thanks for your message. We are really sorry that you have experienced ads of low quality! That is not our intention. We are using Google AdSense. The ads are marked as "Advertisement". And we are reviewing ads regularly and blocking misleading ads. Unfortunately, it is not always 100% successful.

I agree. An advertisement with a large green "Start Download" button is incredibly deceptive. Maybe time to not just put ads in sections, but wrap the entire advertisement, to make that clear that it is *not* WinSCP.

I agree too :-) This is a good example of an ad we do not want and such ads we always block from being shown on WinSCP site during regular ad review.
