I have come across this rather nasty website: "gimp.us.com" which appears to 
offer GIMP bundled with a bunch of horrible adware when you use their 
installer. The website looks like it's official, and they even tell you about 
all the adware it will install, they also claim that GIMP is "advertiser 
supported" which is why they can offer it for free, but is this legal? Can 
something be done? Aren't they breaking the GNU licence? I fear, if not 
challenged, websites like this will ruin the reputation of GIMP. I have come 
across quite a few people who have used this site to install GIMP, thinking it 
is an official download, and then found their computer compromised.
