Malicious Software Website Impersonating MSI Official Website – To Be Avoided
[Taipei, Taiwan] MSI is informing the public of a malicious software being disguised as the official MSI Afterburner software. The malicious software is being unlawfully hosted on a suspicious website impersonating as MSI’s official website with the domain name https://”afterburner-msi.space”. MSI has no relation with this website or the aforementioned domain.
The fraudulent website imitates MSI’s official webpage appearance and design, and offers downloads for MSI’s Afterburner. This webpage is hosting software which may contain virus, trojan, keylogger, or other type of malicious program that have been disguised to look like MSI Afterburner. DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY SOFTWARE FROM THIS WEBSITE.
MSI’s official Afterburner website is not compromised and is safe to use. The Afterburner Software download link is currently closed due to routine maintenance. [Editor’s note: The official website now appears to be working as intended.] The software will be downloadable soon and you can find the latest version of Afterburner at https://www.msi.com/Landing/afterburner/graphics-cards.
MSI is dedicated to providing reliable products that deliver incredible user experiences. As such, we find it our responsibility to protect those who have put their trust into our dedication. We condemn the infringement on our proprietary rights and the damage it has caused to MSI’s reputation. Necessary actions to remove the malicious imposter website are underway.
