Sorry for the caps but this is important. Seems they were compromised and a lot of their downloads are not what they seem.

"Some download links were replaced by another program, not signed, that do only one thing: overwrite the MBR. It's not an infected version of Classic Shell, Audacity or whatever, it's only a small program that targets your MBR. If at the end of the installation process nothing happens beside a short cmd window then you have downloaded the malware."

Classic Shell, Audacity, WinDirStat, qBittorrent, MKVToolNix, Spybot Search&Destroy, Calibre, SMPlayer, HWiNFO, MyPhoneExplorer, IrfanView are some of the affected programs.

Damn, that's some exploit! Quite worrying tbh - as if they didn't have such an obvious payload then imagine how many people would be affected.
