    I guess it would come under security issues....
    The main page http://www.freedownloadmanager.org is gone, replaced by...
    I think many ppl. used and loved Free Download Manager. This is pretty much a shock (and what's a generation 11 worm?)

    Sounds like it has been hit by the Santy worm, which I was warned about.

    There is one thing I don't understand. I'm assuming that people who write, create and spread viruses often just want to be well known on the internet and gain respect. But would the person not get more respect by making and spreading a virus which did good instead of bad, for example deleting others viruses.
