I was messing around today and I ended up at this site, http://piratebay.com.co. It claims that it is the safe version of the Pirate Bay dot com, which is obviously the biggest torrent site on the web. It tells you to download it and be safe. I am not sure what it is, but I am pretty sure that I am not going to download it and I have the feeling that I might not be safe if I did. Of course the truth is that you are probably safer downloading stuff off of torrent sites than you are if you get it from the places like downloads dot com or hot files dot com. That is because you have to to worry about those places bundling malware with the stuff that you download and it does not always matter if you decline it when they ask you if you want it or not.
It happened to me when I was just finished putting together a great new computer. I saved up a bunch of money and decided that I was going to put together the most awesome computer that I could afford to build. I got this friend of mine to help me out, he did the stuff that I was worried about messing up. He put the main board and the CPU in, after that the job was not all that tough really. It is not a lot different from putting together a lego set, you just have to know where it all goes and take your time to do it the right way. At any rate I got it all together and it was really sweet, but it did not have any software on it. As soon as I started to put stuff on it I ended up with some nasty malware.
