I have received a number of private messages recently about alleged security threat on the mediafire hosting site. After looking into the evidence provided, it appears the risk is real and documented, confirmed by mediafire itself.

In order to protect our community from this security threat, I have decided to blacklist mediafire. If you have to host files externally, please use alternate hosting sites such as sendspace, mega or onedrive.

I had seen this message on another Mugen site, but the people there preferred to ignore it and removed the post from there.

It will be bad for me because I use Mediafire to store some of my files, including my palette packages. Well, the way I'm going to migrate to my old MEGA account.

Well gonna have to learn how to upload to Mega. Is 4Shared out of the question as well?

And "elsewhere" it's even suggested as secure space... sticking to Google drive.

I actually HAD a mediafire account, but after two weeks of getting it, I couldn't sign in anymore for some reason. Well I still have Drive so IF I need to alt stuff I have that.

No, MediaFire is not dead. What happened is that the links from this site are no longer allowed here.

O.O virus in mediafire ?, there I have hosted my most precious files!
I have researched a little, but nothing is sure, so I will be forced to erase everything and re-raise it to mega!!

I find that surprising. Do they only worry about security issues when it fits their agenda? :doubts:
If anybody needed another evidence they're a fraud, they have it. They're showing a huge lack of respect toward their own users.

Not many sites you can trust now.
I remember when mediafire was the best download site. (my opinion)

Yes they do. In fact Shana has an alternate link which is hosted on Google Drive. In fact I own that link.

I hadn't heard about this until now, so thank you guys for getting the word out. It's a shame, I've enjoyed Mediafire's quick no-nonsense service for years. I'll adapt though

I downloaded from mediafire once, opened up a page to a game that was 18+, immediately closed it as soon as it opened. :busted_cop:

Been noticing for quite a while now that Mediafire downloads now link to some pretty malicious looking ads and sites, certainly seems like a good idea to no longer support that platform if it is a risk to other people's safety.

this why I use Gdrive and onedrive and also MA database :)

I've been in the process of taking a LOT of my older created stages off of Mediafire, and get them onto my stages site directly. Something always felt off about how Mediafire was acting lately. And what has been reported here is only more proof of my initial thoughts.

From now on, I will only use 4shared

As of this post, I have removed all 26 of my past releases from Mediafire. I am in the process of uploading them directly to my stages website, and will post details about the mediafire situation on my front page. Expect a post on this soon.

I'd recommend Google Drive or MEGA. And both are free.

Is really low from some people to attack mediafire just because they provide some better service,in fact most of the problem of security risk comes from adf.ly links to mediafire so the problem is adf.ly not mediafire per se,but i realized wasnt a problem on mediafire was just some people trying to cripple the service and expect users get away from the site and migrated to other cloud service providers which in the end didnt work because most people know how medifire service is and you can even tell from which country the upload was made and even city and location.<br>Is clear this is just a bad move by google and microsoft since their service arent used as much as mediafire (not surprise ondrive is the worst of all clouds services not only that you can barelly download something from there since have a limit of download per day but unlimited download size if it gets finished,gdrive well is slow as turtle so people wont use it) the other culprits could be 4shared and similar unknown cloud service providers because medifire has a really good service,you get a limit of size file to upload but to date is the only service that doesnt have a limit of download or capped speed since i download from mediafire around 5 or 6 Gb dailly (even MA have a limit really low so blacklisting a site that is better then what they provide is laughable)

I think that 4shared is worse than Media fire I prefer if they also block 4 share because they shared the same rules as Medifire drama. Im just sharing with bad experiences with Media fire and 4share or even worse sendspace >.>

Mega and Google Drive and One drive and MA database is the safe way to keep thing uploaded and safe

screw the hell of Media fire, sendspace and 4 share... there my common enemy from the start :boxing:

I haven't really had a problem with Mediafire. Maybe because I have an ad-blocker or something? I don't know.
But man, I wish people would stop using 4shared. You have to have an account to download the files. I am not getting a 4shared account. Period.

Anyway, my creations/edits I either host on my webs site or on Dropbox.

I agree Dropbox isn't the best. It always seems like it could be a little more user-friendly or something. But it gets the job done, logging in isn't necessary, and it's safe.

Tsk, it will be harder for me to find and download MUGEN files. I know you can download them, but Mediafire was one of the easiest way to download them, and now they blocked it...

To be honest, after thinking about it, I'm not sure why the admin decided to blacklist Mediafire. He says the risk is real but to me it doesn't look real.

I mostly use MEGA and Google Drive, so this shouldn't be a problem for me. I've had a few files downloaded automatically before from MediaFire, and from there I stopped trusting it.

I also i use 4shared and Mediafire (i have my folders are saved correctly there) and i don't have problems with sort of that. My mediafire account and folder are safe... no worry about download my stuff...but 4shared is somewhat dangerous because i found some Mugen characters cheapie with a malware code...yeah i found this in the wikia pages..i've read a lot..
I know Mediafire is in the blacklist but also 4shared is not recommend for us for some reasons (check below)
