Do you guys pirate software and games? I pirate pretty much all my entertainment, but I avoid pirating anything that is executable to avoid installing malware. How do you pirate software safely? I thought about setting up a virtual machine but that would take too much effort tbh
I don't download software/game binaries for that reason as well, but pretty much the only media I consume is obscure anime which can't be purchased in the west.
I don’t do anything on the computer besides browse so no. I’m pretty sure it’s conventional wisdom to scan torrents for viruses though.
I don't pirate that much but If something can be done free i will do it free , even if the buyable option can be pirated.
I pirate pretty much anything. I mean, if you're looking for software and games, I would make sure that the torrent has a lot of seeders, and if you're on a forum type site like rutracker, then you can pretty much be guaranteed that there won't be any viruses since it would have been reported
download from here: https://igg-games.com/

if there are no viruses, install that bitch. you don't even need to torrent most of the time.
piratebay is full of garbage these days and the good stuff never has any seeders
