A while back I wrote an article about the amount of tweets on Twitter there were with people offering cracked versions of SAM Broadcaster.
Since I wrote the original articles about SAM Broadcaster cracks they’ve been viewed over 56,451 times and It seems nothing ever changes I see searches on a daily basis still looking for SAM Broadcaster Keys.
Fired up the PC this morning and looked at user searches on my admin pages and I saw this…
“SAM Broadcaster virus infects RadioDJ”
It sounds to us like this person has downloaded & installed a dodgy patched copy of SAM Broadcaster off some torrent/pirate site which installed some malware on his system & is now interfering with the smooth running of other software such as RadioDJ.
If this user downloaded SAM Broadcaster from some random pirate/torrent/cracked/warez software site, then the patches used to crack the software are bound to contain nasty Trojans/Malware.
If this user has got malware or a virus on their PC it could be stealing bank details or other sensitive information.
We can guarantee you 100% there’s no way this user has downloaded a dodgy copy of RadioDJ. There are no viruses or malware in RadioDJ…
Marius the author of RadioDJ wouldn’t program something like that into the software.
(Although he does try to protect his code which can sometime throw a false/positive result up from some antivirus software solutions)
Why bother with pirated copies of SAM Broadcaster in the first place? When there is a better FREE alternative.
RadioDJ FREE radio automation software doesn’t require any keys/patches/cracks in order to work the full program.
There are no nasty hidden fees or catches just a fully fledged radio automation program that knocks spots of SAM Broadcaster.
What this user needs to do is reinstall his copy of Windows and install RadioDJ instead of this dodgy copy of SAM Broadcaster.
“Unless you’re downloading dodgy software files or visiting dodgy malware infected web pages you don’t really need AV software on a studio production machine, Windows defender does a good enough job at keeping our PC safe, Then again we’re not downloading dodgy software”
Stop using pirated software it’s NOT big and it’s certainly NOT clever and it will only cause you grief when you get some nasty Trojan crashing your system.
Mind it sounds like it’s probably too late for this user if a virus is already causing him grief it’s probably already stolen his details/passwords etc…
