Pirated Versions [MB]
Posted 28 February 2013 - 11:45 PM
I've noticed many new sites that are offering 'Serial' activations for Malwarebytes, it is quite annoying seeing that we have had to buy these versions ourselves and other people are taking advantage of the offers that are provided, I did notice when we activate our versions there does not seem to be any form of a connection (could be wrong) to the server that says thank you, your version has been validated and is now operating the full version.
Instead you insert your activation and in a millisecond it states you are now activated, is this a way that these people get away with these theft of activations, I decided to try one myself recently as a result and it activated and updated without any issues, I do have a full paid version if anyone wants to validate (however, this was all done for testing purposes) to see whether or not they were actually working the same way as the PRO versions do, no surprise it works fine.
Does Malwarebytes blacklist these licenses or how does this operate?

If you know of sites that are providing a hack to our software you can report it to either the Help Desk or send any one of the Admins/Moderators a private message with the link and we'll check into it further.

Regardless, don't you have a dedicated team to sort through licenses or do online searches to see what licenses are in use, or to even look at KEYGENS that are currently online to sift through those KEYS to look at blacklisting them?

There are many PC games which I've passed on simply because the DRM is so strict or invasive. They lost a customer, and pirated versions are still available anyway. I've also bought games from places like Good Old Games, which offer exclusively DRM free remasters of games. Provide a good service, and plenty of people will be willing to pay.

I'm sorry but I'm not at liberty to go into details about DRM. Thanks
I asked if you had* a Dedicated Team, not asking about DRM.
I was actually getting annoyed with Malwarebytes, Trend Micro deems it a threat, and even though I have ignored the threats and allowed the installation I still feel it has done nothing for me, blocks websites that are also legitimate, and for me I found it a waste of money - sure it works, but it is also illegally used quite heavily.
For me I'd rate Malwarebytes at least a 7/10 - it has improvements I think should be implemented though at least fightining KEYGEN harbourours is a good sign I have seen, I had noticed one KEY from a year ago that was still active recently so I am really not sure if Malwarebytes has any dedicated team to fighting this, though anyways in the best of luck let us hope it improves.
