 Some other web site provides a registered version of AceMoney. Is it safe to download?

Solution

AceMoney cracked, serial, keygen, s.n., password, patch, hack, key, cr, sn, ... Is it worth the risk?

Many "crack" sites offer a free "registered" (i.e. purportedly pirated) version of the software that is actually a "Trojan horse" (definition). Such programs are not always detected by anti-virus programs since they are not actual viruses. Yet they can let the pirate take over your computer, transmit or corrupt your files, or even erase your hard disk.

Consider this: if the crackers have already been tinkering with the program, or generating an illegal registration or unlock code, how likely is it that they have your best interests at heart? Oh, and by the way, we are talking about your financial data!

If you practice safe computing, you'd best avoid "serial", "cracks", "warez", "appz" and "keygen" sites. Even visiting these sites often exposes you to "sploits" (exploits), which attempt to take over your web browser and/or computer.

Don't say we didn't warn you.
