"WildFire CD Ripper is a copy of CDex"
Version: WildFire CD Ripper 2.3
I don't like anything about this software. WildFire CD Ripper was shamelessly copied from CDex and a few undesirable commercial extras were added. See this Usenet message:
WildFire CD Ripper = CDex !!!!
But with undesirable extras and a slightly different appearance. It comes with options to make Yahoo the default search engine and to install the Dealio toolbar (...) during the program's install process.
This picture shows the resemblance: (url, see below)
Even the Help file is copied, although it's much larger than CDex's. There is no reference to the code origins, despite the obvious source. I am not sure about the legal implications of it all, but in my opinion this is not the poper, and certainly not a very moral, way to use CDex's open source code, to put it mildly. One wonders what else these crooks did with the program.
