Scam Alert: Don't Trust Unofficial Keygens!

Post by Soundragon on Wed Jul 14, 2010 6:47 pm

(Please note: This was taken from the public LU forum on the LMB's.)

Hey Gang,
You all should know that it has come to our attention that there is a potentially harmful program floating around the web. It falsely claims to create Activation Keys for the LEGO Universe Closed Beta test!Please steer clear of the program as downloading it could be harmful to your computer.

The only valid activation keys for Closed-Beta testing are distributed by LEGO. If you, your friends or relatives would like to sign up for
a key, please do so here:
http://us.universe.LEGO.com/en-us/thegame/signup/default.aspx. We cannot
guarantee that every signup will get a Closed-Beta activation key, but we will be
giving out more keys soon!

Stay safe everyone! Smile

yes, be careful with clicking links that you are not sure of. Especially if they claim to make activation keys and are not from Lego.

Be safe

Usually you cannot trust any keygen software.
There's a lot of mallware in it, like keyloggers, add-popups, backdoor-trojans, build-in spam-servers, etc.

Besides, using kegen software is usually illegal too.

I never go near things like this at all though my second cousin works for IMB/Dell/Eircom and well he sort of helps us with telling us what NOT to click. (Program wise)

Thank for telling us Legofan. My internet filtering will probably block me from those anyways.
