    Hello,
    I want a wordpress theme but it is bit expensive for me.
    I will buy it surely in future when i will have money.
    .
    And free themes are not so attractive, So, I am downloading a Nulled themes.
    .
    I have found some sites like WPYAK, and WPLOCKER,
    Are these sites are safe? should I download from these sites?
    I mean theme are Malicious free there?

    Better stay away from nulled themes. I have heard lot of horror stories!

    Why don't you search the download section here for original shares? There are some original WordPress themes and plugins shares here. Check the ones from InnovativeSEO.

    No they are not. Most of them contain added codes, for example backlinks, ads, backdoors...
    They can also be very well hidden like base64.

    Listen to me, you're better off paying for themes or using free ones from wordpress. If you can't afford paid themes just split them with a friend.c

    Well, i am web developer also and i can say that it`s much cheaper to buy theme than hire someone to check code. Then you can be 100% sure that it is clean code.

    OP if you really want to get premium themes for free, rather look through the downloads section here. A lot of members share themes they've purchased themselves, and I'd trust them a lot more than any of the sites you've mentioned.

    Better you use free themes on WordPress repo. There are several great free themes like StarGazer, Hueman, Iconic One, MineZine, and JustWrite.

    Pirated themes seem attractive at first sight, but when your sites get compromised the game changes.

    I got hacked on several websites using nulled themes before.
    It's much better to use a free theme or pay for it.

    Nulled themes mostly have backdoors. Some jpg or image files is not an image at all but a php file with malicious codes, just given with extension as jpg instead of php.
