I found this link via stumbleupon.

If you use cracked software, perhaps you'll encounter this thing one day.

Check it out:


A message from a software maker that aims to make the nasty software pirates feel bad for cracking their code. Wait, do pirates actually feel shame?


Here's the link:

Wow, that's a new one.

For some reason it made me remember the programmer that contacted warez group BB3D for them to stop cracking his software, for which they apologized and promised not to do it again.

they accept even generated codes? why not just blacklist them if they can recognise valid from invalid keys

Because of the reason mentioned in the pic: they could just play this "game" forever, but instead are accepting pirate codes. They ask, why not stopping there instead?

but i think you can generated new keys with a keygenerator.or not??

time after time if they are blacklistet generate new ones

i think there is no way to stop the P2P pirates

Perhaps they can discover those after checking if the entered key has been sent to paying customers...

Problem is that crackers would only make it so that the program doesn't "phone home", and then it doesn't matter whether the company is checking against customer keys or not. This will continue forever.

That's right. In that case programmers could make it so that if the phone home check doesn't succeed the key is automatically rendered invalid, but that could be patched as well... it's the neverending "game" mentioned in the pic.

Is it real ? I mean,you know those funny pics about hacking that people make everyday,so could this be by any means true ? anyway,if it is,I guess their weakness was shown easily by such an announcement,and unless that hacker a good guy,then they will suffer more,I guess.

No, I think that it is quite genuine, Aurion.
I don't think that it's a fake of some sort.

Me neither.
