Win32/Keygen is the name we give to programs that claim or try to illegally activate software.
Of the two million PCs every month that are detected as having Win32/Keygen, nearly 50 percent are also infected
with malware. Some of the most dangerous malware pretends to be a keygen, such as Win32/Sirefef.
Malware authors can use known vulnerabilities in common software to attack your PC. Software vendors regularly
release updates to fix these vulnerabilities. The best way to stay protected is to keep all your software up-to-date.
