    An old saying came to me when I read this--When you play with fire sooner or later you will get burned.

    It is true, that the activation crack contains a virus, but only the main exe.
    When the main exe is unpacked, there is a virus and a crack without a virus.
    Most people allways run the exe instead of unpacking the stuff to look into it.
    Crack writes usually provide clean stuff, but hosting pages add their mallware.
