So referring to my recent thread where i was facing issue related my hosting
I was in so hurry and i have to pay my invoice in btc ASAP and i just copied the BTC address in payment page and sent the money, BTC address was xyx and when i copy the address it was pasted this 3GvSevN4pTrQrBY9PhEwozRPh5uPsL8jUZ , this is scammer BTC address , I just noticed this after 2 min of sending money my bad :(
It was because i downloaded a crack game and i got Trojan in my pc.
After checking the BTC address i found that he made $7k+ in just one month with just one crack game , just wondering how much he will be banking with a lot of crack game or apps. this is insane :/
NVM Lesson learned i know downloading a crack file is a noob move:/

Pretty shit week for you isn't it? First, your crypto anything should be on its own safe system and nowhere near your gaming rig. Second, Download games from reliable crackers, not random people online. Safe sites would be IGGGAMES, RARBG, etc, read commends ofc before ever downloading anything, but most of these sites are safe. Especially IGG which is only 1 scene group. In any case, always double-check everything related to crypto, and than triple-check your double-check. Slow down my friend, the world isn't going anywhere.

For download of any fishy things, always keep a VPS for all that and that VPS do not use it for anything related to any payments.

TBF, I've hardly ever paid for games.
I still use software from 6-8 years ago, I can afford to buy more modern software but if I dont have to spend the money then I wont.

Ya true if we can get it for free why to pay for game. i never paid for games i have installed lots of games and i always check before downloading but this time i was unlucky , but after this i feel like paying for games is better than taking Trojans because we are also risking our personal life files and videos :/

Don't worry , it's nothing. Money comes and go , at least you learned something. I don't feel bad for you because you lost $100 , I feel bad for the cockroach who rob people.
Ya bro i am good really thanks but if you check he scammed lots of people he will be making $20k+ with this scam.

I helped somebody build a website I few weeks ago and then they disappeared without paying, I still feel a bit bad about it now.
Reading comments like yours helps make me feel a bit better.

I know how we feel if don't get what we work for , but its a part of life bro sometimes getting a scammed is a good lesson as @Leader777 said money go and come we just have to move on and don't waste time just thinking in this.

Usenet? BitTorrent? Where exactly did you download it?

He installed a game and cracked it. He either ran the crack that installed another software or the crack installation process was already part of some shady installer. This new software probably watches clipboard and when it detects a wallet address was copied in it, it just replaces it with scammers so that when he pasted it, it wasn't what he copied anymore. This is such a simple software it can be coded in an afternoon, the hard part is distribution. For every person that downloaded his tampered crack and lost some crypto, there were probably 100's others who don't even use crypto for payments on their PC so lets not downplay the dedication needed to get enough videos ranked to get decent downloads. I know a bunch of BHW members will try to replicate this method now, but most will fail the distribution part so better think about that first, before your commit a crime and don't even get paid for it. If you are able to get that many downloads, you can monetize them without becoming criminals.

OP, hope you learned your lesson. If you plan to use cracked software, don't do it on your work PC. Ideally don't do it at all. Software keys are practically going for pennies at this point and only professional niche software is still expensive. Stop buying games at release and you'll be able to pick them up for 20% a bit later. Also you got time to game? Business really that good? :D :p

Btw. when you downloaded the crack, your antivirus probably complained about it, but you whitelisted it, didn't you? Man, these days hacker and scammers really have it easier than legit software developers. Users cry about false positives on legit software but are perfectly happy whitelisting cracks.

Usenet? BitTorrent? Where exactly did you download it?
He said it was from a YouTube video. Probably for a game that recently came out and doesn't have a crack yet so kids are getting desperate. Or it could be just that the perpetrator is doing this in large volume, uploading videos for any recent game.
