How safe are TechBench downloaders?
Is it safe to download an iso from TechBench downloading service for example:
I have no idea how it works but it supposedly downloads the ISO directly from Microsoft servers.
Chrome says the download for Windows 7 Ultimate is coming from
(I think the link above is only good for 24 for those trying to test it, it may have already expired but you can generate a new one using the website)
Note: These are hidden downloads, no longer "officially" hosted by microsoft (they are still on MS servers but hidden). Originally these were on Digital River (anybody remember that?), now they are on techbench but hidden.
I'm not debating the legality of this. I'm just asking if the actual process of doing this is safe and if you feel like explaining how it works you can.
