Am I missing something?

I will not instruct them to download the free version, nor will I download it for them because there is nowhere else to download the free version, except for the CNet site,
These are other Approved download sites to which you can download the free versionCnet has a dedicated page now just for Malwarebytes' HERE
For the rest of your concerns, I would rather have one of the staff address that. I am just a helper

Thanks so much for your reply. I had forgotten about MG providing a download, but was not aware of the other sites you mentioned providing the download as well, so thank you for the links. More to the point; the links you provided are not provided on the MB download site, and the only link that I can see that is provided is to the CNet site. Although, as you have indicated, the CNet site has a dedicated page for MalwareBytes, that does nothing to change anything; again, I really do not understand why MB or any anti-malware company would link to a site with downloads containing malware even though the malware is not included in their download. It just seems counter-productive sending someone to any site with known issues of which I have mentioned within my first post as well as it seems to promote that site which provides convenience to the download of the malware. The fact that CNet provides download portals for those that choose to include malware within their wrappers, plus the fact that CNet is aware of the malware, to me and again to others, is an issue. I would think it most appropriate for Malwarebytes as well as any/all reputible software vendors to remove their downloads and links from such known sites. I appreciate and understand the fact that you would rather have my concerns addressed by staff and I look forward to a response.
