WinDNSDynamic.exe from DNSdynamic.org Spyware?

Recently I signed up with DNSdynamic.org which offers a free dynamic DNS service. I then downloaded and installed WinDNSDynamic.exe. Ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and immediately saw Windows message saying WinDNSDynamic.exe crashed. Uh oh- I thought. After the scan completed, Malwarebytes showed that the executable contains Spyware.Password.



I then tried to go back to DNSDynamic.org and Malwarebytes blocks it- I get the "Unable to connect" message in Firefox. I took a look in the Anti-Malware log and it shows:
Memory Processes Detected: 1

F:\apps\WinDNSdynamic.exe (Spyware.Password) -> 7464 -> Delete on reboot.

Scary stuff especially since when you search for Dynamic DNS, this apparently malicious site DNSDynamic.org is the top result. Goes to show you that you should not trust nor install any program unless you have antivirus AND a good anti-malware program such as Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware installed.
