About Installing Cracked Softwares and Protecting your System from any possible threats

Hello Everyone,

As i mentioned earlier that i will tell some ways to test software before finally installing on your main system, so in this thread i will mention all the methods through which software can be checked before installing on main system.

We have seen previously that some accounts got compromised, and now we have implemented some security and updated some rules, but no matter what we implement or what we setup , there will always be people who wants to harm others systems and we can't track all of them, so your security is your own responsibility , that's why you must test software's before installing them on your main system. We are trying our best to increase the security and rules to decrease such cases in future but that all will be waste unless you take step yourself and test things on your own.

If you find any Software which is suspecious , report about it to staff so that an action can be taken regarding it.
