Today, we're going to talk about why it's risky to download and watch pirated episodes of your favorite shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Flash, Arrow, Supernatural, etc.
Why Put Yourself and Your Computer at Risk?
We're not trying to frighten you, but you should know the risks you're taking on when you download and watch pirated videos from torrent sites. Downloading pirated videos is really not a good idea – not only is it illegal, but it opens you up to liability since HBO has been tracking down illegal content distributors and it makes your computer vulnerable to all kinds of malware. Just see what Consumer Reports has to say about why it's risky to watch pirated episodes (it's an oldie but still very relevant) . According to a recent study by Kaspersky, many pirated shows contain malware, adware, and trojans capable of hijacking your computer. Game of Thrones episodes were particularly egregiously full of malicious software.
- Downloading pirated videos is illegal (psst...PlayOn is perfectly legal)
- Your computer could get hacked or hijacked
