Also know that cheaper is not always best. Certain pieces of software have a tendency to be offered a lot cheaper than what is possible. This is due to?pirated software which most of the time contains viruses, rootkits and other nasty methods of stealing your data without you even knowing. This dodgy software has also been known to hack into your webcam (again using hidden software) so even you can be spied on. Seriously not worth scrimping on!?Usually quite easy to spot – 95% of “Windows Ultimate” we have encountered has been a non-genuine copy.
Another method used is breaking licensing agreements. For example license keys could be “borrowed” from another machine and used on yours – meaning your software license is invalid. ?They could even be taking a note of your software licenses to add to their inventory for a later date – essentially getting something you paid for – for free! And then selling it!
Not to mention the fines businesses face when associated with using illegal software.
