Not surprisingly, when we wanted to play a game, called Knight Solitaire, this website offered us the incredible 60-day free trial to install the game on our computer by downloading a .exe file. The provider domain for the executable file was dl.iwin.com (IWIN INC.). This is a domain that is connected to a legitimate online gaming website (www.iwin.com) and for some, it is even surprising that it has not been identified by security experts so far as malware.
