    LANview - suspect site?

    Free MST Software LanView Download - Free Trial MST Software LanView

    No idea if this is genuine or not. Registered to an individual in China!
    A heads up, just in case.

    Well the download link points to what was the genuine MST software site, but I think MST themselves are no more (see MST Software Closed) so the link doesn't work.

    To me it looks like a site that links to genuine downloads in order to attract page views for ad revenue.

    eh, yeah, got that, been using Lanview for quite some while now.... maybe 2 years or more. Sorry if it wasn't clear in my initial post, but I was highlighting a site which was 'fronting' the software. As several people have asked me to send them the .exe's for Lanview (which in turn shows it is still being sought by new users) I was concerned it might not be all that it was making out to be given the domain was registered to someone in China.

    If it's safe, all well and good.

    Yeah, wasn't sure, and then when I checked the domain WHOIS, I saw it was registered to someone in China. Given David Cameron thinks they are a threat, I thought I ought to act!
