Be Careful while Downloading Pirated Contents from the Web!


Recently, on one of my post, I mentioned on how to save a few bucks, Internet users just keep downloading pirated contents without even checking, the name of the sites they are downloading contents from. I have seen many internet users who dump GBs of contents ranging from Movies, Music, Apps etc from many bogus sites to their hard disks. Have you ever imagined what the consequences may be?

According to sources, many popular song sites including are many times used to infect targeted PCs with harmful and malicious viruses that could badly harm your computer networks and systems.

You will be shocked to know this statement flashed in The Indian Express:

With these websites ( and others) being highly popular, it will take only a few minutes for the hackers to take command of over 12 lakh computers in few minutes and the number of such computers can multiply in every minute, sources said.

Recently I also posted on how more and more Orkut Communities are being targeted by many unethical hackers.
Hence, this post is not to panic you, rather it is for your information that, even your computer system can be targeted for some small mistakes that you commit.. So hence forth, be careful while downloading pirated contents from the web.

but how can they infect virus while downloading songs…i have been using since long…???

Gautam January 11, 2009

They can infect virus easily. Sometimes it maybe with the song or maybe in popup.

I never trust these sites, however i never thought that songs[dot]pk would do something like this :O. Though, i haven’t used it but have heard of it a lot. And I think popuplar sites should not do some mischievious things like this 😐

I have some issues with the above post. Firstly, why Pakistan is being targated? Only Pakistan has been mentioned in the above post. Why? According to author, do all malicious hackers belong to a particular country?

And secondly, I have been seeing many posts here that just points the problem without explaining anything about the solution. OK, I will “be careful while downloading pirated contents from the web” but how?
