Apenas um site de hospedagem de arquivos.
Sucessor do falecido MegaUpload, é seguro e por si só não apresenta nenhuma ameaça ao sistema - porém, devido à natureza do site, programas maliciosos podem ser hospedados e cabe ao usuário fazer a devida análise.
http://www.mega.co.nz => www.mega.nz: MEGA: New official download site and file sharing (formerly www.megaupload.com) site that allows sharing and downloading via key secure and highly encrypted, meant this time, avoid tracking by third parties.
Please be warning of fake megaupload sites, for example hxxp://www.megaupload.ma (very dangerous and infected by malwares)! The true official site is www.mega.nz !
The interstitial Pop-up of mega, touting its client software MegaSinc becomes annoying for people not wanting (difficult, especially for non-English speaking not to download and install it in place of the desired file).
The rules of use have been tightened since the result of the closure of the old site megaupload, to avoid further hassle of Justice, Kim Dotcom already under major legal hassle after his former MegaUpload.
Formerly MegaUpload (created in 2005 by a German Kim Dotcom, living in New Zealand), one of the most famous file sharing and downloading site, known worldwide, and supposed to be made to last, especially by the geographical distribution of its servers to avoid the vagaries of justice.
This site was eventually closed (with the FBI after numerous investigations and tracing and international cooperation, given the money involved) following numerous complaints and proceedings, especially through multinational of the production of intellectual and artistic artworks , audiovisual goods and softwares. Accused of massive and lasting receiving stolen of intangibles copyrighted and intangible goods used in malicious purposes ( software for pirates), etc.
By its richness Kim was able to stay in New Zealand and avoid extradition to the US where he was waiting for him a lot of judicial and punitive trouble.
The FBI had been close MegaUpload because this site was ending in ".com" (meaning commercial purposes site) and the suffix is under US ownership.
I'm pretty positive this site hosts beta versions of Mega (it's owned by Mega). It works fine, this and mega.co.nz are both very good cloud storage services. Here's my rating for mega.co.nz;
"A clean, user-friendly cloud storage website. Probably my favorite site in that category. The company that runs it is a very big player in the web privacy game; there's a lot of encryption and security in the uploaded files.
Safe site. My favourite cloud storage service."
WARNING: Kim Dotcom is not involved in MEGA anymore and doesn't trust it. Your data on your account could be compromised.
"The company has suffered from a hostile takeover by a Chinese investor who is wanted in China for fraud. He used a number of straw-men and businesses to accumulate more and more Mega shares. Recently his shares have been seized by the NZ government. Which means the NZ government is in control. In addition Hollywood has seized all the Megashares in the family trust that was setup for my children. As a result of this and a number of other confidential issues I don't trust Mega anymore. I don't think your data is safe on Mega anymore."

A very good, ad-free file sharing site that gives MediaFire a run for its money. Very swift to put files on your PC, with no stupid waiting times.
If you thought MegaUpload was truly beaten to death by the feds, THINK AGAIN.

The Mega cloud storage service (based in New Zealand) is one website I've used for quite some time. It is a privacy first company, and holds true to that statement. 50GB of free storage is something I could not refuse.
The site itself is actually a very safe and user-friendly place to find free downloads. However, files appear to frequently fail downloading for Chrome users and you must be careful with what you are downloading. Also, the Mega Chrome extension does not work in incognito mode. In fact, the extension will prohibit any part of the Mega site from loading in incognito mode. If you are a Chrome user, download the Mega sync client to download files from your Mega drive.
