    Hi
    So, I have a question.
    I'm talking about online products such as themes, wp plugins, online marketing courses, etc...
    from a simple search in google of "the name of the paid product" + "free download" I recently bumped into those suspicious websites that's offering (obviously not legal) those paid products for free and usually it's been uploaded to a spammy download website (with a lot of ads so the site owner could earn a lot of money from stupid people who clicking it).
    Apparently it's a huge industry of stealing. tons of websites like this. It's also looks like it's happening here in the "members downloads" forum....

    I would like to get your perspective on it. What do you think of it?
    Do you think that part of those website are implementing inside those download some vicious files?
    For example, if it's a plug-in, it may contain harmful files that could potentially take over your website or something?
