    Over the past few years, I've heard of sites for movies, but was always fearful of viruses and scams. Has anyone heard of or used scenesource or mkvhub? Are they legit? Or are they honeypots to entrap users?

    my antivirus pops out. It might contain spyware/malware but most modded programs usually have that stuff. Not really tell much about it.
    I would say 50 percent that it might be bad. I would use a different none main computer to test it.

    Thanks for the response. I've DL'd a few things from Scenesource, and once from MKVhub. I'm more concerned about pirate traps, though trojans and hostage viruses are also a concern. Just wanted to get a sense from others who have used these sites if they ever had problems.
