    Yes your right, given your history with cracked material, which we can know thanks to your comments at Sister site, you really should use exclusively legit sowtware.

    I'm not, you're all the time complaining about cracked software, so there is only one question : why do you still use it?

    In the end you never know about these things. This is one of the reasons I tend to not use this kind of software as often as I'd like. However, there's some kind of code of honor, regarding certain release groups. They can't just infect their releases with a miner and not carry consequences as soon as it comes to light. There's this unwritten rule that as long as it comes from the release groups and as long as you download it from the official releasers, you'll get clean stuff. If the group or the releaser taint the stuff, that is frowned upon. I know of an example from the gaming scene where some repackers were found to install trojans or miners along their released games. Once it came out their name was tarnished and people still disrespect them to this day and avoid their releases. They never recovered from it. So it's not only about exploitation, but also honor and reputation. A release group, especially one with a legendary rep, would be stupid to include malware, because it's gonna come out some day, and they'd ruin everything they have built over many years.

    Do you believe in a flat earth, too? It seems like you really like conspiracy theories.

    And regarding your topic, you tell me that software from some shady website was bundled with a miner or trojan? How could it be, man, how? I would have never thought so... :facepalm:

    I've never had any issues with software from our sister site and if you had any, you are probably one of those guys, who don't even read "READ ME" files and complain that they can't install the software.

    As someone who has used cracked software longer than some of u have been alive (mIRC? Bubba Zenetti anyone?) I can deadass honestly say, GTFO with that bullshit. I've actually found it HARDER to find BAD cracked software than good cracked. I'm also quite knowledgable about software in general and can say other than a few bad installs of cracked software (typically rectified in a repack), there has been NO legitimate claim I can make that a piece of cracked software has messed up my system. And I use Windows. I install all updates of Windows. I use my computer for EVERYTHING, porn torrents, dark web. I am also NOT a lucky person. I am simply observant and take note of what happens with my computer. I don't believe in bullshit. I don't just listen to what the keyboard PHDs say, I find out, make my own conclusions.
    Cracked software is about as bad as GMOs. Fight me.

    EDIT: upon deeper reading of said topic article, it seems the author found a no-name WordPress website, downloaded X amount of software from there and found it all to contain said malware. NOTICE THE DETAILS, why was the software cracking group(s) not named?? Fucking duh. Like going to a fly by night auto dealership and finding all the cars are lemons. Seriously... like SERIOUSLY??

    "At the time of writing, there are 137 VST-related applications (42 for Windows and 95 for macOS) available on a single WordPress-based website with a domain registered on 24 August, 2018. The first application – Kontakt Native Instruments 5.7 for Windows – was uploaded on the same day. The size of the apps makes it impractical to analyze them all, but it seems safe to assume they are all Trojanized."

    My hypothesis is simply its website specifically made for the nefarious act of distributing software to commandeer unaware systems to crypto mine. I'd go further to guess the website has Russian, Chinese or Indian roots.

    That is the reason why you never find ANY cracked apps in my system. All the apps I use are 100% LEGIT. I never download non-legit software. Pirates and crackers are very bad people.#[email protected][email protected]$$$

    You are 100% right. GTFO. The author implies that all the apps are guilty until proven innocent? Or guilty by association?

    Not us. We outsmart you. We have new Trojan. We don't need internet connection. We use the power cord and the power grid. Internet connection is for Mickey Mouse pirates and crackers.
