New 2014-12-09: Excessive promotion, suspicious promotion contents and redirection to suspicious download sources have been removed, so that I can improve my rating.

Great site with lots of usual software. Unfortunately it seems that the site team does not react consequent enough to security issues. Since beginning of the week any download in a Browser without AddBlock will bring up an Add with faked "Updated" messages and faked Download buttons for VLC player, OpenOffice, Gimp, 7z, may be others. The download buttons will lead to suspicious download sources like "files4.fastdownload7.com" and "fileopenerapp.com", what will try to start a download of malware- contaminated software. Details on "Issue 125872 – Genuine OpenOffice download hijacked by profiteers " <https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=125872>

They know about this problem since Monday afternoon (at least), but the problem has not been solved until 2014-11-19 06:00 UTC

Addition 2014-11-22: Still no progress, and I see Adds advertising "adults only" online games …

Sourceforge site héberge de bons projets, mais son équipe a tendance à pourrir les fichiers d’installations Windows pour y ajouter des programmes non désirés.

I'M DINGING THIS SITE FOR PRIVACY!!! I came across a very questionable ad and and am not amused. Other than asking for a yellow privacy rating, this site is fine.
