Correct Answer - Option 3 : Pirated software
The correct answer is Pirated Software.
Pirated Software is the unauthorized use, duplication, or sale of copyrighted software.
Pirated software is software that has been copied or distributed for free or at a vastly reduced price against the wishes of the creator.
- The term "piracy" comes from the music industry and specifically the illegal broadcasting of music without paying a royalty.
- Windows 10 automatically scans your computer for pirated software.
Cracked software is usually (but not always!) pirated.
- The operative term is ‘crack’, which means that some type of patch or workaround was applied to defeat copy protection.
