I dunno about you guys, but if I'd have access to any sort of unverified files, I'd run them only from within a virtual machine. And disconnect it from the internet for the first run.
I'd also run a network scanner to see what's going on when the program is running, but I'm a bit paranoid when it comes to this stuff, so.
The only thing to be paranoid about is if Blizzard will respond to those who have connected to download the client when they haven't been officially invited. Otherwise, it's a safe download in regards to malware/viruses.
I'm excited about the launcher being leaked, great find whoever linked it first, but I'm apprehensive about getting too excited since you can only see the loading screen and tweak menu settings with it really [ ] I also just found out that Beavis and Butthead is making a return!!
Just to let anyone who want's to leak anything know this is in the TOA or EULA whatever you want to call it
