I also tried to download others' codeplex projects but they all showed "this file is malicious" information (using Chrome). interesting...

Chrome won't let me download MagicaVoxel from here on codeplex, either. "This file is malicious." However, I can download it fine from the new homepage. BUT, when I ran it, Norton had a fit and said it detected "suspicious activity", and promptly stopped the program and deleted it. I DM'd @ephtracy on Twitter a couple days ago about this, but have not received a response. It's also a little odd that on the new homepage, the zip file is downloaded from "23.98.147.40", which has no ptr record. Any thoughts?
