first off i dont pirate software. a friend asked my advice to a possible threat i told him to upload it to virustotal he gave me the link. he also emailed me the file that i downloaded in a VM i scanned the file with updated Avast,superantispyware and malwarebytes. nothing found also in the VT scan lots of the big names Kaspersky,bitdefender,fseure,M$ say no threat. so i left wondering are the companys saying threat just saying that as its a keygen and adobe maybe paid them to say this to scare ppl. https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/0833d82ceade071f5c9ce023d38c991819c5c33a465fc1a2f8081f2b98157b5d/analysis/1474914995/ in my opinion id say its safe.

Did your friend tell you where he got that file from, and what it does exactly? And no, Adobe doesn't pay company to flag products as "keygens" or else. Antivirus companies does it by themself.

So its a keygen? With the purpose of getting an adobe product for free?

 

I wouldn't trust it. I would advise your friend that this is not a legal thing to be doing and to delete the keygen and don't run it. You never know what the keygen could be running in the background. Could be clean, but why bother and take that chance.

And see Aura's post below.

BleepingComputer doesn't condone piracy and since this is a keygen application, we cannot help you with it, sorry.

For more information, you can read the Forum Rules.
