Fake AMBOSS add-ons

There are currently 11 AMBOSS add-ons listed on Add-ons for Anki 2.1 - AnkiWeb. Only one seems to be the the AMBOSS add-on. Some housekeeping would be helpful.

AMBOSS distributes the add-on via their own website (English, German). So I wouldn’t trust any of those add-ons on AnkiWeb.

Here’s a list of the add-ons, if dae should decide to sweep through them:

  1. AMBOSS
  2. Amboss add on
  3. Amboss 123
  4. amboss.ankiaddon file
  5. AMBOSS Official – Medical School Step & Shelf Study Resource
  6. Amboss Anki Addon V
  7. Amboss anki addon
  8. emboss
  9. AmbossForMe
  10. Amboss Anki
  11. Amboss add on new
  12. Amboss- add on

emboss

Ouch.

Well, there shouldn’t be obvious fakes on AnkiWeb, @dae

AMBOSS Official – Medical School Step & Shelf Study Resource

This one seems legit though.

I suspect this was just well-meaning users making it easier to download before Amboss decided to upload their own version. If you find an add-on that is doing something malicious, please let me know, but I’m afraid I don’t really have time to be curating the list otherwise - that’s sort of what the like/dislike buttons are intended to do :slight_smile:
