Flaw in your argument- "If I do it they wont be hurt"

If everyone did it the company would go away. If 2 people out of 10 buy the game and the rest warez it, the company will not make enough revanue to contiue and will die.

I'm saying that not ALL piracy hurts the company. I realize that some people who download games for free WOULD buy them if the warez version were not available. But most piracy, especially when it comes to the big companies, really causes a lot less damage than the companies claim it does. (There is no way of measuring how much damage piracy did to your sales. They're coming up with bogus - and grossly inflated - numbers.)

The full game is on Kazaa... But who ever put it there (luckaly) was not smart enough to put the Instal shield in too... The game is safe... There are 5 diffrent copies... I also found alot of real hacking utilities... Some have viruses... Don't touch'em unless you have AVG or Mc Afee... The demo is cool so far and i plan to buy the game soon... I do have the money... So I'll just have to wait a week or two... The forum seems interesting enough so I'll stick here a while...

I am the angel of death...
i draw in a breath...
Letting fly from the barol...
The barol of death...

The bolt drawn back...
A caseing flies...
And far away...
Some-body dies...

The bolt comes forward...
Good to go...
I am a sniper...
I wreap what I sew...

u lot are twats, i mean, u all go on about this dumb-ass who wants a copy of the full game for free,
but what is the main point of the game,copy delete and generaly fuck up some one pc, in one word "hacking"
what does that say about u load of fuck-wits.

i admit the game is really good and i learned a lot about hacking from the info in the help files, also if anyone wants to actually try hacking goto:

That website is kinda old isn't it.  I mean, that really isn't hacking so much as knowing javascripts and software compilers.  It's not like dialing into another system or social engineer your way passed some low level employee of a company to get access to some top level software.

This isn't meant so much as a flame as it is a call a place to actually try hacking?  I could of course look the fool and be confusing that site with one of the dozens others out there that "test" you by levels of trying to hack past security features but most of those sites, which btw are known as "Hacker Games" or "Wargames", are normally just sites using java passwords that you need to get through.

There is one I heard about that lets you actually access a box and try to hold onto the ownership.  That one sounds really fun and if that is then I'm sorry I was confused, but when 9 out of 10 so called hacking tests turn out to be nothing more then java password sites you tend to shy away from them.

*I don't hack computers, I just like testing security features*

There's a pretty big difference between a "hacking" game -- and it's Hollywood-style hacking, mind you -- and being a bonehead and trying to "hack" in reality.  Off-hand, I'm pretty sure that despite the violence of some of the games I've played, I haven't left a trail of missing corpses in my wake.  *shrug*

Man, I never quit seeing these posts.But I agree with all the people on the forum, who say, just buy it.I did, and look at me.I luv the game.If you REALLY cant afford it (I doubt it) then just wait till you get some money for your birthday or somthing.I mean, if you can afford to live everyday, then surely if you want the game, you can go without food for a while to get it

You wanna know if you can hack? go to your computer and turn it on. Now get your laptop (you don't have a laptop.. too bad, i need to do that to limit resources) and then hook it up to the other PC through the internet. Noww try to access the other PC. Your other PC may have to be hosting a website to make it easier and more realistic, but try to gain access to it. Once you can do that in one minute, then you can make the website have a firewall. Even something stupid like HakAtak should do to teach you. Then work your way up. Once you can bypass the newest version of Norton, then you can try small independantly hosted websites online.   I don't advise it though. I learned through hours of study in programming and security (surprisingly, looking at the software's documentation can help a lot. Anti-hacker books help too, 'cause they tell you what not to do.) Now, this doesn't mean, try to hack your PC. Once you do it, go try and hacke the Social Security Databese or something. First of all, the SSD is not on a read/write basis with the net. You need to be there to change it. Second, you can't deal with the punishments (I'm sure). Third, you don't have a chance. They employ the hackers they catch  to secure them. They catch amazingly good hackers. Have fun :biggrin:

You don’t think that exploiting any open or unsecured resource is “hacking”? I think that default passwords, open ports, poorly done firewalls/proxies, bogus certs, promiscuous NICs, packet cap & decode, asking for passwords, Trojan w/heuristic change, and the ever loved wireless NIC, ect all would qualify as hacking..

Good for you.  The people that actually baught the game, good for you, the other people who got it for free,  well you just shorted the company $25.  They could have used that money to make a patch for the people who actually baught Uplink legitamently( can't spell).

Hell.....Arious.... This msg. has been posted for less than an hour and already has 58 posts.

I agree with Xynobis
What you're doing is like, say, walking into the Sony Store, taking a look at some top-end entertainment system, and then asking the manager if he knows a simple way to sneak it out of the store.

You shouldn't go to an Intorversion post hosted by the makers and start asking where you can get a pirated version.  Now I'm not going to say it's wrong to go to some place like KaZaA and look for it.  I'm sure about 90% cannot, we have all found a warez for something or another because the program was insanely priced. Or.. we'd all be hypocrits (is that how you spell that? )
Any ways...

In this case the product isn't so fork over the 25 and help a company out. Not to mention the enjoyment you will get out of the game!
