Disclaimer: This was a dream and I do not “cheat” or ■■■■■ software anymore.
Well, it does say general discussion and it does say Anything and everything… So I’m going to share my last night’s dream.
So yesterday I was playing around with Zemana AntiLogger and was pondering whether to buy it or not, with the help of this forum I decided that I didn’t want to buy it since it seems to have some bugs on my system and it’s a yearly payment (I don’t agree with yearly payments for software)
But anyway, I’ve had a past with “cheating” the system and using keygens or cracks etc to get software working (I don’t do that anymore and I haven’t done it with Zemana AntiLogger, don’t worry.) And so I assume my mind decided it was a good idea to include that in my dreams.
((Since this was last night’s dream, I can’t remember exactly how everything happened… you know because dreams are easily forgotten even if you try not to forget.))
–Start of dream–
So from what I can remember my dream started out by me sitting at my computer and playing around with Zemana AntiLogger, but then “for some reason” I decided to use a keygen to ■■■■■ the software. I already had the keygen on my computer and I right-clicked it and ran it in the Comodo Sandbox. Everything was working fine.
Now you might be asking “I thought you said it was a nightmare?” Well after Zemana AntiLogger was cracked I started noticing a noticeable slower computer and then suddenly things started flashing on my screen and files on the desktop changed icons and file extensions and then lastly, the all too familiar Ransomware lockdown. I don’t know about you but I have emotions in my dreams and the sudden fear and panic of losing all my files and having to re-install Windows made me wake up in sweat. I thank god it was just a dream.
–End of dream–
So as you may see there are a few problems with this dream, but as you may know dreams don’t give a rubbish* about logical problems. What I mean is that I was using CIS in the dream, and I was also using the keygen in the sandbox of CIS, yet it completely trashed my computer, that is of course something that wouldn’t happen without an alert from CIS the way I have it set up.
So yeah that is my dream and it’s the first nightmare I’ve had in a log time, or at least that I can remember. Now as you may have seen there is a poll in the top of this thread, basically I’m wondering if you have ever had any computer security related dreams? If you have, then please share!
Thank you for reading, just something I wanted to share and I look forward to seeing any replies (if anyone even read this ;D)
