Corrupt Simulator

I suspect that there is a corrupt simulator on the RIM site

 

BlackBerry® Device Simulators v5.0.0.405 (9700 ATT)

http://swdownloads.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=060AD92489947D410D897474079C1...

 

It only downloads 20MB and it has a spam kink below it on the View Release link

 

Who do we notify about this?

Re: Corrupt Simulator

I was able to download the file in Canada without issue.  There could be a problem on one of our mirror sites.  What country are you downloading from?

Re: Corrupt Simulator

Also note that on the page, there is a view details link below it, and only for that simulator, that is a spam link that tries to get me to join some competition. There may have been some hack attack.

Re: Corrupt Simulator

There was an internal link for release notes that was removed.  Do you still see something there?  If so, can you post a screenshot?

Re: Corrupt Simulator

The file has been re-uploaded to your local mirror.  Please try downloading again and let me know if you have any problems.

Re: Corrupt Simulator

It says the site is down for maintenance. I'll have a look later
