1- Anti-malware apps may warn about keygens, patches, cracks etc because of
their capabilities (generating codes, etc). Sometimes also they're added to
the virus/spyware database and will be detected as malware. If not trusting
keygens, patches, cracks etc don't use them.
2- Before running .exe-files, keygens, patches, cracks etc always check first
if they can be unpacked. Often some third party added a virus to the
original file, repacked it and uploaded it again.
3- Firewalls which are set to automatically decide for apps to connect to
internet will allow connections for lots of apps & MALWARE!. To avoid so
firewalls should be set to decide yourself which apps may connect to internet.
4- Some people use multiple accounts and post lots of FAKE comments trying to
spread confusion. Usually they NEVER seriously reply on comments and don't
have any torrent, or to look reliable just a few.
5- Usually (new) torrents with extreme many downloads & seeders in a short time
are very suspicious! Torrents with the GREEN death face VIP-logo are clean.
6- In general often there are more fake & negative comments than reliable &
7- Clicking on unknown links can cause malware being silently installed on a pc!
8- Posting FAKE comments & uploads on TPB can result in getting banned from TPB!
For reporting suspicious torrents:
For visiting my account:
All my torrents are scanned with:
1- Norton Internet Security 2008
2- AVG Antivirus Pro 7.5
3- aVast! Antivirus AV Pro 4.8
4- Kaspersky AV Pro 7.0
5- NOD32 AV 2.7
...and also with most well known antispyware. Reported malware detected by
other anti-malware apps probably are false positives!
