Indeed, so it is critical to never upload any binaries to them that you do not have full permission to redistribute. Nowadays they are very open about the sharing, but in the past this was kind of hidden.

Not sure if that's good, bad, or something else, though. :)

They're free to download and execute any files... Just to be sure.
