I’m a crack!

Internet offers us many possibilities, some of them are tempting, like downloading all types of programs without having to pay for it.

I’m not going to comment whether this is good or bad, I only want to warn you of the risks you may run, as the websites that offer this type of “products” are not always trustworthy.

In fact, we’ve detected several websites that offer cracks which actually distribute malware belonging to the Zlob family, Trojans mainly designed to download samples of rogueware.

The malicious websites are the following, among others:

crack-info.com

crack-key.com

crack-keygen-serial.com

crack-news.com

crack-software.com

crack-warez.com

crackblogs.com

cracknews.info

drcrack.com

search-crack.com

serial-key-serial.com

serials-keys.com

thecrack.name

warez-crack.com

wincrack.org

In the following image, you can see the appearance of some of them:

If you follow any of the links included in these pages, you’ll be actually downloading a Trojan of the Zlob family.

The malicious links have the following  format:

http://mediagrouptag.com/video-plugin.XXXX.exe
where XXXX are random numbers

These are the domains we’ve found until now where the malicious files are hosted:

caredatasystem.com

companylogodata.com

greatwebmultimedia.com

logodataonline.com

mediaonlinecode.com

moviestandartonline.com

phpdatatools.com

plantfactfile.com

showallvideo.com

thedigitalinfo.com

bestfilesworld.com

greatestwavefiles.com

mediagrouptag.com

medialabelstore.com

In these cases, trying to avoid the payment of the license of the program can work out expensive, as it can imply theft of information or download of more malware.

    The best way to avoid this kind of things is to learn by your self how to crack applications :)

    would you install a crack which is called video-plugin-xyz?;)
    the sites mentioned also offer(ed) video-plugin.XXXXX.exe-files,
    but the format for the fake cracks is: crack.XXXXX.exe.
