Something looks fishy to me.

I don't think an old school guy like Sewards would be running a
WordPress site. They would use plain HTML 3 crafted in Vi or Emacs.
They would also probably avoid SourceForge due to the malware
packaging of old.

Finally, WHOIS does not indicate Sewards is the owner. They are still
showing register.com.

I would not trust any downloads from that site.
