They were bundling malware with the Windows downloads of popular Open Source projects, and giving the developers a cut of the profits.

FileZilla comes to mind, their forums have many archived/closed threads from people negatively affected (eg spyware installed on the PCs) but the Filezilla admin just stuck their fingers in their ears and went "la la la".

Disgusting behaviour all around.
