Dear Evan,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.  I have visited the URL
you provided but was not able to find a threat expert report with the
md5 listed.  I have also tried scanning the indicated file with threat
expert and it did not list any issues, so I'm assuming that the
malc0de page is in error.  Please let us know if you have any
information to the contrary.

- Nikita
