Thread: crackerbox (virus?)
July 1st, 2002, 10:29 PM #1
Anybody heard of this? I downloaded a certain file from Kazaa, (the purpose of the that file isn't supposed to be discussed here).
I scanned the file (an .exe file) with the most up-to-date Norton virus definitions before I ran it, and nothing came up.
But anyway, when I ran the .exe file, a message box popped up that said "Virus Alert! If you can see this message it means you are running a program on your computer called crackerbox that attacks our site! Please remove it from your computer!"
I don't know what "our site" refers to. Perhaps the site that belongs to the company that produces the software that I was attempting to, uh, borrow.
So anyway, has anybody heard of this thing? I have a feeling they were just trying to scare people into not using the crack, but I'm not sure."Things like that are easy when you live on a Hellmouth..."

I did some quick checking around and nothing came up with that as being a true virus/program. My bet is that it's part of the executable you downloaded.
You're pretty secure as long as you're running an updated version of NAV.Im against picketing, but I dont know how to show it.
