I would only use this site if you know what your doing. I tried downloading a dll injector off the site and my computer INSTANTLY blocked it. It detected a virus in it but i know some other things are safe on it so i would be careful using the site.

Truly the greatest hub for open source software on the web. Great for all platforms.

SourceFourge has everything ranging from safe software, to malware-laden junk. As with any other download site, use caution and research software before you download. I wouldn't recommend for average users, but it is a fantastic source of some excellent pieces of software, for those who are willing to spend the time it takes to ensure that they are not downloading junk.

Sourceforge had a period in 2015 when they bundled adware with 3rd party installers but since they stopped the practice I chose to trust it again.

Rating 10% trustworthiness (deep red), 40% child safety (BARELY in the yellow) See changedx's comment for reasoning. If you still download from this site, then run ALL of the downloaded programs through a reputable malware scanner (NOT Norton or McAfee), without exception. They may have "fixed" the problems in the meantime, but I don't trust them not to do it again.

Official SourceForge website. Safe.

К сожалению, sourceforge решил пойти по проторенному пути других файлопомоек и начал без ведома авторов добавлять в Windows-дистрибутивы программ (GIMP) левый софт. Будьте крайне внимательны при установке программ с sourceforge.

Since I posted my last review they have cleaned up their act. Even Windows Users can breathe easily here now: they have new owners who shut down the "Install Wrappers" on their projects within 6 months. I now trust and recommend them again.

Отличная сборка проектов с открытым исходным кодом

Offers loads of software that contains addware and runs advertisements for MacKeeper (Scareware) scam software.
