Someone I know has been looking for software and though he can afford to buy it, he wanted something free. So he visited a torrent site, downloaded the file and installed the software. Thing though is the software wasn't what he wanted. He had downloaded an installed ransomware which encrypted all files on his computer and he to to pay some money to get the files decrypted. I'm sure he won't be downloading pirated software for a really long time. If you regularly download pirated software keep this in mind: always run your software in a sandbox. This ensures that you system never will get infected.
