Some further info on the previously mirrored X-CamStudio
archive, resulting in an overall score of 11/53.

Upon extraction, it appears to be a modified WinPenPack portable version, with a later version (i.e., v2.7.4) and a smaller footprint than the one currently being offered for download (v2.7.2 rev5):
Upon further checking the main executable ('recorder.exe
', the one invoked by the portable launcher), the results came up clean (0/70):

I'm not vouching for this file as there are plenty of other vectors for a malware attack (e.g., the launcher itself -- which, incidentally, is also clean
) but, in view of the previous bad results with portable launchers, I fear our response may have been disproportionate.
As I said before, I don't put a lot of stock on similar warnings from free file hosters, which themselves have been know to attempt to trick users into downloading malware. With my previous warning, I was mostly attempting to document the fact, as well as checking if fellow users were getting the same notice.
