Vicky, from the home page of Malwarebytes when you click the download free link, you should be redirected to a page where you fill in your email address. The link to download the free version is sent to your email. Once you click the link in the email, you should be taken to a download page on Malwarebytes site, and as far as I can tell, the download comes directly from them.

If the above is not happening, you may be clicking on the wrong thing, or (and I hope this is not the case) some viruses have the ability to prevent you from downloading anti-virus software. They will often try to redirect urls for major antiviruses to a fake site. If you are being redirected to "cnet" are you sure it is the official cnet site?

Anyway here is a link to directly download the free version from their main server. If you get redirected again, something is up.
The smallest good deed is better than the greatest intention.
