    Looking for the Clonezilla main site, I stumbled across a link for a supposed "Windows version." Cool, I thought, maybe they integrated a unetbootin installer for Windows...

    Nope. It was an ad, and the EXE is less than 1 MB in size and undoubtedly a malware executable. Strange stuff too; among the strings it contains is what appears to be a configuration section for an SQL database.

    I will post Anubis results shortly, in the meantime please be aware that any "Clonezilla installer for Windows" is a fake.
