There is nothing we can do stop this---if you start looking around
you'll find all kinds of sites offering "software" for download. Most
are ad or link farms, or as Werner said, a scam to get you to download

In other words, it's a waste of time chasing these down, as they'll just
pop up again. If there is a legitimate site offering outdated QGIS, the
it's probably worth a suggestion to just point at our site.
