Software companies have been serving the general public for years. But in this process, starts the raging war between the companies and the so-called “crackers” who try to counterfeit genuine products in order to promote piracy.
This creates a loophole in the distribution part of the products. This battle has seen some technical advancement in preventing counterfeiting of the services.
While Microsoft has implemented a product activation procedure for the Windows Operating system and its Office suite, some of the premiere gaming company have a registration process into their servers in order to activate the game, declining which the game becomes unavailable for playing. Yet, there is a continuous struggle amongst the “cracking ” society to crack the softwares for free access and piracy.
While this struggle has accelerated with time, a company has finally decided to allow the vicious pirates to gain legit access to their product. Malwarebytes, a premium security firm has initiated Amnesty, a program to enable the users who have procured the serial key from piracy dealers or have downloaded it from the internet, to reissue their security key for free. This reissued key will provide the user with premium access to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for a period of 12-months.
The company states that the internet has good pioneers as well as bad pirates. While the pioneers work hard day and night in order to provide users with state of the art services, pirates try to dupe people into buying pirated versions of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
“Amnesty program has initiated providing free replacement keys to the premium customers who have been facing inconvenience because of pirated keys or software abuse for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware”.
To ease it up, you can start by downloading the latest version of Anti-Malware Premium(direct link to download). Once you are done with the installation, the activation setup is initiated, where you have to enter your illegal activation key and proceed. This redirects you to the dialog box which gives you the option to select “I’m not sure where I got my key, or I downloaded it from the Internet”. The company then issues you with a new key along with a 12-months free premium membership.
This has been started by Malwarebytes, who are providing one of the best security suites and anti virus tools in the market.
