By accident i clicked this vendor "Download OpenOfIce Xtrem 2018 " they have a Fake Loge looking like Open Office, but i wasnt fully awake and downloaded it started the install. Then it ask me to send a SMS to a 4 digit number to be able to install and the bum they charged 10 dollars of my phone bill.
Im pretty good at spotting and very aware of these kind of hoax, but this one got me....so be aware
By the way they use a paid Google Add to theire scam.

Welcome to the Forums.
Thank you for the information... hopefully others will be aware.
The only official download site for Apache Open Office is at http://www.openoffice.org/download
There may be other sites that have the official version, but we don't know.
If you haven't done so yet, I strongly urge you to do a thorough scan of your system for viruses and malware.
OpenOffice 4.1.6 and LibreOffice 6.0.6.2 on Windows 7 Pro & Ultimate
