    so i know that windows torrents can have all sorts of viruses and trojans but what about mac torrents?
    would it be safe for me to download an adobe torrent for mac? is there a way we can check whether the torrent is safe?

    Torrents are cool. Just be smart. Don't download a punch of porn, or a bunch of music. When you're searching for a specific torrent, search for the torrent with the most seeders. Basically the most popular torrent, if a lot of people are downloading it then you can probably bet it is safe.

    Watch out though. I've gotten warnings from my ISP before. They are just petty threats, but I had to 'lay low' for a bit. Some torrent providers are actually traps set up by ISP companies. These dick heads already make billions of dollars but get mad when a kid wants to download a $20 album because he can't afford it. Download away man.

    Just make sure you read the comments for the torrent I like Torrentz, PB and KAT's torrent sites. Also when download is done be sure to stop seeding right away. Just so they know your not sharing and you probably wont be on the ISP hit list.

    private torrent sites will be your best bet
    most of the 'cracking process' will tell you to block the program from "phoning home" via Hosts file...as long as you do that, then you'll be ok (do via firewall to if you can)
    I'd also recommend stop sharing once you d/l...+ be careful as there may be infected files shared on random/lesser known torrent sites.

    We cannot offer suggestions regarding downloading pirated
    Adobe products since ALL Microsoft and Adobe products
    are on our Do Not Share list.
