I never pirate games because steam already mines bitcoin

>> No.82239262

Whoever wrote that malware was stupid. You don't force the miner to run at 100% usage. You make it use something like 1~2% of the cpu so it doesn't raise any red flags. If you have 200k+ uses infected then that's going to add up.

Bonus points if you manage to bury it process that the user thinks is legit. This is why I don't trust any type of crack or pirated executable. I don't care how trust worthy it's supposed to be.

how stupid do you have to be to think they would make it run at max capacity? Genuine question or do you think ur some godgiven genius here? Lmfao this is just embarrassing

Honestly if you think about it its not that bad of an idea for legit software. If you can't pay the subscription you can always sell a portion of your processing power to Adobe.

>> No.82246883

Not that data, the usage data, all the mass software and apps have either social experiments or outright ai training embedded everywhere, all that data has a value and its the kind of data that you can only get when you have a big enough user base. Lets say we go 0 paranoid (which we shouldn't) and assume the only thing they do is A-B testing for the sake of retaining customers, upping the conversion rate in the case of freemium games, or maximizing session time for the sake of putting more ads in your way. Even that kind of data has a value even if its product specific. Companies used to have to pay to do that kind of research on their own products, now its all packaged up in the product itself.

Freetard at it again. This is not your ToyOS Distro#98563, if you weren't deluded you would get why they offer extended security updates for those versions. They are the the more important than home users. Btw w10 LTSC gets support until at least 2029 while home edition ends at 2025.

Still using windows 7, how do I detect these programs?

>> No.82247332

Use task manager or another resource monitoring application which will log or otherwise let you view history of the usage for CPU and GPU. Also run thorough antivirus scan. Shut down any software you run that uses internet/network and then closely monitor any network usage, look for connections to any odd sources

To be fair the only one i ever tried was a music one, the issue was not enough people were downloading the stuff i had downloaded (or i wasnt being used to seed to them) so i basically couldnt get my ratio up at all.

Communism is just the same as capitalism: Collaboration
In both cases, it is (with the exception of the few elites) completely involuntary.

Max Stirner was right: to be truly libertarian, you must not advocate liberty for other people. You must identify and advocate your own will, acting on it rather than aquiesce to ideological, propagandistic, or forceful assertions of anothers "right".
Never give up self-interest to the superior might of oligarchs or to "moral panics" driven by the hysteria of the crowd, and never yield to their corrupted laws.

Do not become (what Stallman has astutely called) a "victim-collaborator", acting as both warden and captive in a prison of your own making. The wilderness, both offline and on it, remains outside their grasp, so long as you make the slightest effort to leave.
But dont become afraid of being labeled a "hypocrite"–insufficiently atomized and individualistic–and hence powerless.
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.

No living thing is an island, entire of itself.
all life (even asexual) exists to replicate itself. To any mammal, life necessarily entails mother and father, children, and mate.
So dont be afraid of fighting to replicate the existence and ensure the survival of the itself (Heidegger's Dasein) that you are: your kind.
You are alive, so excel in that which life does.
