Information About Software Cracks
Chances are good you're reading this because you've visited an illegal software crack site searching for one of our company's products.
TedCo provides financial software. So since you're here, we'll share a free lesson in economics!
Perhaps you remember "TANSTAAFL" from your college Economics 101 class. It's the acronymn for "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch" from Robert Heinlein's 1966 novel, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (which was also the title of the best song Glen Campbell ever sang). The acronym was also used by economist Milton Friedman and it means you can't get something for nothing.
What does it mean in terms of software cracks? It means this: while the cracked software may be (ahem) "free", you'll pay for it.
Surely you've wondered why someone would crack software, pay for a web site to host it and then give it away. It doesn't make sense. It takes time to crack an application. It costs money to distribute a cracked program. TANSTAAFL!
You'll pay for the crack. It may be in the form of a trojan installed by the cracked software. Trojans are small pieces of code that let all the folks who distribute the cracked software access your computer without your knowledge. They may steal your financial data (think "identity theft") and use your personal information to pretend to be you.
You'll pay for the crack. The crack may install spyware on your computer or infect it with a virus.
Remember, TANSTAAFL! There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch!
