Hacktools can be used to patch or "crack" some software so it will run without a valid license or genuine product key.

We recommend you don't run hacktools because they can be associated with malware or potentially unwanted software.

We often see malware on PCs where hacktools are detected. You can read more about hacktools in Volume 13 of the Security Intelligence Report.
