That is simply illogical. It’s like saying 30% of files on the internet are viruses so you had better not download anything. The fact of the matter is, warez is all about reputation.LarryOsterman wrote:

It's clean. When it comes to "viruses in downloads" it really depends on where you get it from.
I see software companies like Microsoft and the rest to cite malware as a reason not to download warez, but has there ever been an objective study? They'd need a sample of newbies looking for free software versues leet inidividuals much like myself.
...but then I fear they might not want to publish the results
It's my understanding that 30% of the warez has been trojaned. Of course that also means that 70% is clean.
It's sort-of like saying that my revolver with 2 bullets in it is 66% unloaded, so it's safe to play Russian Roulette with it.
Yeah, I know it's an unpleasant analogy, but the alternatives I could come up with were worse.
It's about who can get out the best release in the fastest time.
Now don’t misunderstand me I am not condoning warez but I do believe in keeping an accurate appraisal of the situation.
