Pirate Warez Group Exposed for Collecting Information on Pirates



A Warez group has been exposed for collecting information on pirates who downloaded cracked software they released.

The group, "MeGaHeRTZ", has allegedly been including malicious elements in its cracks for popular software, including SmartFTP, DVDFab, FlashFXP, Incredimail, Traktor and BurnAware Professional.

Somebody noticed unusual firewall activity with a cracked version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro and investigated further, finding that the software had been e-mailing information back to a number of addresses, all of which have account names containing some variation of the MeGaHeRTZ group name.

The information it sent back included the username, computer/drive serial from the Windows API, and the host machines's IP address.

All software they released has since been "nuked", but its all out there now.

Cracked software containing malware is nothing new, but its very rare that the malware is added by the originating group. Typically the malware is added later and spread on P2P networks, file sharing forums or BitTorrent trackers.

Default Re: Warez Group Exposed for Collecting Information on Pirates

Nothing new.
An "Encrypted Single user Warez Disc" that I created way back in the 90's did this.
The Disc could only be used on one Users PC, because all Windows computers have their own very special number. Each time the Disc was run it would send me back the Special Windows Number, the Disc's own special Number, the version of Windows and the machine as well as the User/'s names run by Windows itself. If you ran the Disc on the wrong PC then the Decryption would be wrong making the disc useless.
