Cutting costs using pirated software can quickly become stressful, expensive and time consuming.

Since pirating websites aren’t strongly policed it’s easy for cyber criminals to infect a program with malware, which can then spread to thousands of users.

Google often flags these websites and warns you if there is a high chance of stumbling across malware.
