Discussions cover how to detect, fix, and remove viruses, spyware, adware, malware, and other vulnerabilities on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. I've read several posts about the topic on keygens lately. Sometimes I wonder, are all keygens considered dangerous? I know a couple of friends that use keygens or cracks, and they never protect their computer with anything but Windows Firewall.
My brother also downloaded a program containing a keygen, but no risk is mentioned when I scan with AVG, Avast! Not even Housecall or Ewido feel that it is a threat. Keygens are designed by hackers; criminals. Simply put, they are individuals that are not to be trusted.
They are known to bundle keygens with malware, either simply because they can or to benefit from others. Steal banking account information, for instance. After all, what's to stop them? They have the knowledge, and if you wanted to report them you would have to start by saying "During the commission of a crime The way I see it, those who go playing in the sewers are bound to get dirty.
I believe my brother had already installed the program with the keygen in his computer. There's no problem whatsoever despite that. Neither did my friends face any problems. I understand that the problem with keygens, cracks and all are widespread. But even when using them, will there be any security breaches that are caused in the computer?
Some cracks modify parts of the program in order to work, which can result in anything from minor glitches to significant security vulnerabilities. Some have reported using cracks for Windows that opened backdoors, letting hackers have full access to the user's computer.
Copy files, record keystrokes, etc. As I said, playing with fire will get you burned. They are illegal, so if something does happen you have no legal recourse, and the only support that can be offered begins with removing the pirated software.
I would strongly recommend advising your brother to purchase the software or choose free alternatives instead of taking the legal and security risks of applying illegal cracks. You need to understand that these are two very different things. Keygens are programs that have been "tuned" to the program to make serials that will actually activate the program.
They don't necessarily change anything in the program when making this. They may have reverse-engineered the source code of the program to find the mathematical algorithm so every serial made by the keygen will activate the program.
Cracks on the other hand, such as no-cd cracks copy all files to harddrive, because some programs require the original disc to be able to install properly , are a different thing altogether.
These DO change the program. Off course, this might open you up for malicious alterations too, like keyloggers, changing firewall rules, checking your contacts for e-mail adresses spamming , allowing viruses, adware and so on and so forth.
There is no way to tell which group have made the program that enables you to break the law, so scan the keygen or crack before you run it, preferrably with more than one updated AV and anti-spyware and -adware program.
Hackers are everyone that has an idea on how to improve something, and the means to do it, and actually follows through. Find out how it works, so they can wreak havoc with it. These are the guys trying to break into Pentagon computers to get the plans for THE Bomb to sell it to terrorists. Everyday example would be adding a keylogger to find out your credit card number and PIN, social security number, account numbers, etc.
Well, I didn't really mean "security breach", but I refer to any online threats that follow after the activation of a program with keygens. I'm quite afraid that the program may allow a loophole for hackers to reach their "hands" in and mess up a lot of things.
Thanks about the advise. I'll see to it that my brother will know about that. Although I can't really do the same things to my friends; they have already used cracks and keygens for years. Keygens are hacker stuff and the reason they pose a risk other then the obvious legality issues, is that many times a virus will be tucked in there to give you a little surprise while you think your getting one over on the software company.
In truth, other than my friends, I know of several people who are able to unlock programs with keygens and use it without trouble for a long time. Some simply want to enable others to use paid copyrighted software for free and do not wish to cause the end user harm. However, there is no way to tell which is which.
It's a risk you take when you perform an illegal activity. Honestly, a part of me is glad when people who use keygens and cracks end up being hacked, sued, or ripped off themselves.

Why else would you have it? It provides probable cause to investigate the matter. The crowbar was designed for and is primarily used for legitimate purposes, particularly in the construction and woodworking industries.
Cracks and keygens, on the other hand, were specifically designed for the sole purpose of circumventing copy protection, an illegal act.
That is one of the foundational distinctions of the US copyright law, differentiating between illegal software and legal software used for illegal actions. That's why it's illegal to develop and distribute, not just use. Yes I agree some keygens are used to spread malware but there are keygens which don't have any kind of security threat.

I use kaspersky internet security 6. While I download a crack or a keygen it scans the stream and instantly gives me a warning if it is some malware and prompts me to stop the download.
I no all Anti-viruses misses viruses sometimes. Recently I did the online virus scan of bitdefender and it only declared an one crack as a malware that also was only in the backup storage other than it's normal folder and It hasn't certainly spread into system folders.
I don't think that's much of a problem. Certainly you have to take the risk to get free softwares. And I think most companys propaganda to give the impression to the public that the keygen and cracks are ultra risky. And I don't blaim them a bit about that.
