Someone's distributing your app

Do you know that someone is distributing your Adblock on their site out of Chrome market?
They suggest to download it in archive and I don't know if it contains viruses or what else. They contacted me suggesting to advertise their site in my IT blog for money, but I'd rather advertise you than someone suspicious.
If they're authorized to distribute your app then I apologize for bothering you.

    Hi Tetiana,

    Thanks for reporting this! Our code is open-source, which means that anyone can use it. However, no one is authorized to distribute their extension as AdBlock. Can you please give us a link to that extension so that we can investigate?
