(COPYRIGHT) Website claiming to be official


Recommended Posts

minecraftforged[dot]com is the site that is claiming to be official, 
They offer an installer in an EXE format that comes with bundled software as follows

Screenshots and imgur links

Installs `Segurazo antivirus`
Yahoo search for IE, FIREFOX, and Chromium browser

It looks like it downloads the forge jar file anyways

But doesnt let you close it at all

Yup, there are tons of malicious sites out there that abuse open source software like us. Who don't have the money to sue them to stop.

Forge ONLY ever installs Forge.

The ONLY official site for it is files.minecraftforge.net.


If you use another site, sorry, not much we can do, probably best to run a deep virus scan and learn from your mistakes.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.
