    I was searching Source Forge for something, when I found this -http://sourceforge.net/projects/microsoftsecuri/

    Oddly enough, there's no file to download. :mad: :mad: I wonder why. :D

    MSE is closed source so there's no way that Microsoft host it on SourceForge. Moreover, the project admin is ''utoo213'' who registered also ''Need for Speed Underground''. Not official, not legal not nice at all...

    Well there is nothing in either project that will cause harm to anyone. Probably just some bozo with nothing better to do. I am a member at SourceForge and have notified them of this.

    Its pretty concerning that no one reported this until now.

    Not really there are a lot of projects on SourceForge. There were simple empty ones with bad names.
