    hi
    not sure if this is the right place but here it is. how do you know if any of the software here that you can download is safe. by safe i mean how do i now if it calls home and such?

    there is so much good software here but how much of it can you really use with out getting into trouble?

    how do you go about getting it nulled? is that for the pros?

    thanks for any replies. i just don't wanna load a program and then get into trouble. man there really is alot of free software i'd like to use. anyways thanks.

    if this is in the wrong place my apologies.

    Simple rules to live by in using code from these types of sites...

    If it isn't nulled, the information is still attached to the database it was extracted from and is at risk of calling home. ( Noobs : ' Nulled ' is simply the ' BLANK ' position/place value in a database. That means that there is no information to pull from and that value is ' TURNED OFF. ' )

    If the source code has ANY part of it that is encrypted, that is a good risk for you getting busted due to it having an embedded ' callback ' command in it, which means that it very well could call home and rat you out.

    So, with that said, check your scripts are nulled and are unencrypted.

    Hope this answers your question.

    This is the lounge dude. Feel free to comment or ask questions as you please. I can't give you an absolute answer to your question because I don't know which specific software you are refering to. Keep in mind that I'm a noob here at the forum too and there are many here who know a great deal more than I do. Seek out the posts by harro, snowwhite,essential clicks and others who are really making some coin and learn all that you can about what they recomend. You can feel pretty sure of the fact that if they use it then it works and it's not gonna get you into any shit,and don't be afraid to ask other forum members about their expiriences with a given tool or piece of script. Most of your answers can be found by simply reading through the forum from one end to the other. I personally collect every piece of software that i can find whether I intend to use it or not.You never know when you might find a use for it. I'm careful about my sources and can gladly say that I have never had any trouble with any of the "free" tools that can be found here.It's always a good idea to ask others here first though.
