Andrew and others have asked for these to be taken down in the past.
Most listings are shady and likely contain malware. I contacted the
developer of the first listing last year  but he never responded.
While SourceForge might not care about malware*, large US-based
companies usually care about copyright and trademark violations (which
was a solid legal basis for Andrew to request takedown).
I'm not super sure where to go from there though. This might be a
better question for Wendy Seltzer.
 Who is apparently a Belarusian dev named Sergey Varankevich
