Whoa...which movie is this from ?

I don't think that someone would be interested in doing that stuff here on cheat engine... I mean what kind of people you'll get? Just video-game players :/ , I mean it would be a good way to spread a virus but I don't think it would be worth it.
Btw I think darkbyte / atomos knows what he does, I would think twice before blaming something about programming with him lol! .

P.s. aniway from my point of view that maybe will be not really important... I agree that some more protections would make this site safer.

How about a botnet that simply replaces all executable download links on their network with its own executable(easily feasible) or replaces all executables with a modified one(also feasible, even though it breaks file signature nobody reads).

The thing is, the problems are there, and the solution is free, it just takes a small bit of time.

I'm totally willing to help with this if it's a problem for Dark Byte.

Every example you are giving completely invalidates your point lol... I understand your idea and thoughts behind adding more security to the site, but every situation you have given so far makes having SSL completely invalid and pointless and will not protect anything.

Keep in mind that the current plans include that in the future every user will have their own subdomain on *.forum.cheatengine.org

Thought this has been a thing for a while now, or rather the site responds to any additional sub-domain given.
