Malcode authors increasingly using free upload/download sites.
We have noticed a trend of increasing use of free web hosting sites that are designed to allow for easy uploading and downloading of files over a webpage being used by malicious code authors.
...The sites are very easy to use, are free, and often allow you to host more than 300Mb of files. While this has its use, unfortunately there is little, if any, authentication nor scanning of the types of files which are stored there. Websense Security Labs - Blog
