- The url is a redirect chain to a phishing site

- Repo is completely empty except for a single folder with 1000+ files all named after drivers, with the same 'download' link, and probably scraped website text at the bottom (probably to increase searchability)

- The 'user' joined just a couple days ago and has no other repos

    Tinyurl is just a link shortener

    You might want to read the 'Context' section.

    @catgirldev I could just link you the repo so you would be able to take a look at the mess as well, do you want it?

    There are no drivers, only the same link 1000+ times redirecting you through 3 different hosts to a phishing site.

    @ElectroArchiver I could send you a tinyurl? :P. Jk, not my field of expertise, have worked a while as a tech support for old people and print drivers always were a pain in the ass.

    fortiguard accepts my submissions asap at this point but again, not everyone uses fortiguard
