The now infamous fake abandonware site "free-game-downloads.com" appears to have expanded to a further two urls - "download-full-games.com" and "classic-pc-games.com". Just seemed like the sort of thing people here might like to know. Peace and chicken grease.

No, it hasn't. Those two sites are ran by a woman who uses one of them as a test site. You can download from those sites by using a fake address to sign up for different things. I did it.

I'm not sure if they leech, but at least they don't ask for money. :P

"Download-full-games" asks you to click on some ads for download credit, though.

I just had a look around download-full-games.com, and I won't be returning - Norton detected 2 worms whilst I was tooling around there.

Yuk.

Norton detected a trojan horse virus there for me as well.
