You trust sites that deliberately avoid having a reverse lookup to
provide an IP *name* for their site?

If you visit the site, you'll see nothing of the product itself is
actually described.  There are 8 links on their home page to download
their product.  They are desperate to get you to download their product.  
There isn't any page on their site that doesn't have a big "Download
Now" button.  They even put a bogus "Hacker Safe" logo (a McAfee
service) on their pages trying to convince you that their site cannot be
hacked to ensure you will only end up with their product when you
download.  See
for a list of such sites.  You'll notice every one of them has an IP
name for their web site.  Not one is identified by just an IP address
(and with no reverse lookup to an IP name).  In fact, this web site
NEVER identifies a name for the entity that desperately wants to deliver
their download to your host.  You cannot download from their site
without giving them a legitimate e-mail address to where they send the
actual download link.

Sure, go ahead, download it.  Enjoy it.  Relish in its effects.  Then
flatten your host and do a fresh install of the OS.
