I think Bits du Jour has been hacked!!
« on: June 01, 2010, 06:08 AM »
Today I wanted to purchase a discounted license for Reshade Enlarger, so I clicked "buy" on the Bits du Jour homepage. However, instead of taking me to https(://www.)regnow(.com)/softsell/... I was re-directed to the IDENTICAL (identical as a picture!) http(://www.)hotdownloads(.com)/softsell/... where I clicked "order" and was taken to https(://www.)hotdownloads(.com)/softsell/..., and Firefox started warning me.

To me this sounds as if Bits du Jour has been hacked!!   :o

There has been a reply to your comment on the Bits du Jour comments board for Reshade Image Enlarger by Roger Thomasson.

“@ Curt

No, we haven't been hacked :-) 

RegNow recently requested that all purchase, download, and affiliated links be converted to hotdownloads.com links.  You'll notice that howdownloads.com sport a "Digital River" logo -- that's the parent company of RegNow and a number of other eCommerce providers. 

We've been using the converted hotdownloads.com links for several months now with no issues.

Sorry for the confusion!
