Illegal redistributions

Post by Moonchild » 2012-04-11, 22:30

An important note to everyone:

There are currently no endorsed "multi-language" or foreign language distributions of the portable Pale Moon browser.

Any and all such multi-language or non-English distributions that are offered in several different places are therefore illegal redistributions and in violation of the the Pale Moon redistribution policy (specifically, point 3).

If you see these distributions, please:
  1. If you can, report them to the place hosting them (that includes file hosting services they are frequently hosted on like depositfiles, megaupload, etc. etc.)
  2. If you can, report the listing of them on the website you found them on
  3. Discourage anyone and everyone from downloading, promoting or redistributing these files
  4. Do not trust them. Illegally altered distributions have a large risk of having malicious payloads
It falls outside of my time and capacity to hunt these "repackers", "modders", etc. down, so if and when you see this kind of illegal activity, do what you can to help Pale Moon remain safe and secure.
