Yes; the download links were to random mediafire download URLs
(ie not trustable, not something we would want to imply to users
that they should be downloading and running) and were also for
ancient versions of QEMU (so not being updated or maintained).

The project doesn't provide binary downloads; this would be
a lot of effort for minimal gain. For users who don't want to
do a full-compile-from-source we recommend using homebrew
(https://www.qemu.org/download/#macos), which is the equivalent
for OSX of "get binary packages from your distro" for Linux.
