Accessing a number of file sharing websites in the past week led me ending up on ilivid (specifically, http://lp.ilivid.com/... ), which prompted me an executable payload, instead of the file I'm actually looking for.
Downloading the payload to a virtual machine, and poking around in their "Download Manager" yielded no results in actually reaching the file I'm looking for. It seems like a standard youtube video downloader, with a truckload of upsales to browser extensions / etc.
Yet, they seem to have an Alexa rank of 239 ( http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/ilivid.com# )
I notice, that I am confused.
- Does iLivid actually facilitate access to files otherwise inaccessible via a web browser?
- If not, what is it used for? What purpose do they serve?
Many thanks for your investigations!
