L4D2 / Modern Warfare 2: Night Of The Living Keygens

| | Comments (0)
You know how the nice man on the internet offers you free stuff and you download the free stuff and run the free stuff?

Yeah, don't want to be doing that. With the launch of Modern Warfare 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 on PC in recent weeks, it's only natural that people would quickly jump on the shenanigan bandwagon.

Case in point:

Numerous forums, chatrooms and Youtube videos abound with plentiful Left 4 Dead and Modern Warfare Keygens that really, really work (honest) and most definitely aren't infection files in the slightest.

No sir. Would we put something like this in a video comment if it was an infection file?

...uh...don't answer that.

Anyway, they look nice:

...but they all come with horrible stings in the tail. Some are designed to be bound with whatever infection the attacker wants to bop you over the head with; others come pre-rolled with a malicious file onboard like the one below that's currently being promoted on various Youtube videos:


Modern Warfare / L4D2 Keygen Worm, originally uploaded by Paperghost.

Allow the randomly named file to open fire on your PC, and you'll see many entries like this filling up a HJT log:

That particular file is a worm, and not a particularly nice one at that. Make no mistake, any and all "keygen creators" you'll see over the coming weeks in relation to the above PC games should be avoided like the plague...or a zombie....or a heavily armed soldier that keeps respawning from the same hut even though you shot him dead ten times already.

Stupid respawns...
