Cracking Alert
« on: 2011 February 19 12:14:58 »
If someone knows something about this:

http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=bg&u=http://forum.starrydreams.com/viewtopic.php%3Fp%3D47134&ei=USBgTeHHNJWh4Qb3x6SXCg&sa=X&oi=translate&ct=result&resnum=10&ved=0CHcQ7gEwCQ&prev=/search%3Fq%3DPixInsight%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN%26tbs%3Dqdr:d%26prmd%3Divnsfd

we would appreciate any information you could provide. Google's translation is poor but sufficient to detect evident piracy actitivies on that forum. On the other hand, if there's a valid crack for PI version 1.5 (1.05 ??) I'd like to know/have it for analysis.

Thanks.

Hi Rowland,

Yes, I know that. It's a false 'serial key generator' —obviously, as PI doesn't use serial keys :)

The last time I controlled this false crack it was just a small Windows executable that injected a known Trojan virus. Thanks for pointing out anyway.

It seems they couldn't patch the whole program and the patch currently don't work.
