Subject: Genuine doubts about security and dilemma of false positives. (Specially for music production warez)
My intentions are only to make piracy safer, my expertise is in one group (music), but I hope this can help all.
These are my questions and discussions; please advice me well, if you can, do use the question indexes to make answers more accessible :
(A) Reputed sites like Rutracker, Audioz, VSTorrents etc have content that Defender and even Virus Total show as VERY specific trojans or harmware - ( Bladabindi, Wacatac, Ymacco, Tigger etc); with descriptions saying that these files are ways to open backdoor entries for attackers. Can we just shove these as false positives because we downloaded it from well known sites ( and no one in the comments of the forum is talking about the detections) i.e. How safe it is to shove these as false positives ?
(B) A lot of people here recommend scans from VirusTotal, even though it shows the same page for 2 different keygens and the same comments as well JUST BECAUSE the file had a similar name (or even purpose), is Virus Total a good authority on this ? ( for ex In this case - keygen is same but on 2 different products - https://imgur.com/a/wBEs81h , this is a redundant example)
(C) Is there a way to check those ambiguous files in Sandboxie(plus) and find out the sites or IPs they might be contacting to or processes they might be trying to trigger, how do we identify these processes ?
(D) We can't obviously ask for safe links on this subreddit, can't risk this ship, what should we do when in need of a verified file, where to go, is there a subreddit ?
Subject: Free Ukrainian E-Books for a ten-year-old Ukrainian boy - where&what?
maybe you can help me out! I want to give away my old kindle to a ten-year-old Ukrainian boy in the neighborhood who fled with his mother from the war. The mother does not have an amazon account and buying the books via amazon would probably to expensive anyway. Do you know any sources where I can download Ukrainian e-books for free? And what might be interesting for a ten-year-old boy?
Thank you :)
Subject: Removing DRM on purchased Apple Books
I'm wanting to remove the DRM on a lot of the books I've purchased from the Apple Books store so that they can be shared, but I can't really seem to find any method at the moment that makes this possible. Some were recommending using Calebre with the DeDRM plugin but that didn't seem to work, and a lot of the softwares that seems like they can remove DRM only do it for audio content or films and if any of them do it for books, it seems to be limited to the books from a select few distributers. Since I'm really new to all of this, I was wondering if anyone knew of any method that made this possible. Any information would be appreciated.

Subject: A good cloud storage?
So, I'm trying to store a lot of series because I'm a data-hoarder, but I don't know where to store them. I use cryptomator to encrypt the files myself.
I'm trying to search for a safe site that can allow a good space (6-10 TB at minimum) for a good price (since I'm kinda poor).

Subject: Downloading audio at 320kbs or in FLAC format
Hi, I'm a beginner audiophile looking to not shell out hundreds of dollars to music streaming services for high quality audio, and I have a question. I've been looking for methods to download audio using youtube-dlp at 320kbs from a source that actually offers it at that bitrate. In the past I've been downloading audio from youtube at 128kbs because that's unfortunately the highest bitrate Youtube can encode audio. Can anyone help me out here? Would I be able to download audio at 320kbs on Soundcloud or Spotify? Also, I'm open to any other ideas. All I want to do is get my hands on the highest quality sound possible; if it was free it would be a massive bonus. Thanks.

Subject: Getting a blank page while trying to torrent on Yggtorrent, anyone else?
Pretty much the title, i tried to create an account, it worked, but now i can't download any torrent since i got a blank page.
I've tried to change my DNS as request by the FAQ on the website and to actualize the page, no luck either.
I know from the research that the website got some trouble from the last few months, but i see from the main page that torrent are still added sooo is the site really broken or not?
Subject: Buying Steam Games with Turkish Lira
Hi, I did search to see if there were any questions like this asked before, I didn’t see any so I’m asking. I hope this is alright.
My main problem is trying to buy steam games in lira. They’re unbelievably cheap so I want to buy them and keep my main steam account so it’s all centralized. The problem is that it asks me for a local card to Turkey with a turkish billing address. Is there anyway to ‘spoof’ it in a sense and use my regular card to bypass this or are there any fintech services where I can get a card that can be used locally? Any help is appreciated. I hope this is clear

Subject: are there any sites that release cracked versions of paid mods/trainers for games?
what the title says, I'm not as much interesting in hacking games to ruin people's days but I do wish to be able to play gta5 with a mod menu without dumping 20-30 bucks on one, etc etc etc, i know there's modest and it does the basics just fine but I still just wanted to ask even just to know if there's any site out there that releases these sorts of things
just a name will do but if you could DM me a link that'd be even better
Subject: I made a multi-use downloader for audio/video/direct-url files
I had some time on my hands and its a little project of mine.
Its a GUI app i guess? you put the urls in and it uses yt-dlp along with ffprobe and ffmpeg. For direct-url links it uses Aria2c which is a command-line download manager and is pretty fast
idk if this counts as piracy or is even gonna be of any use since another person might've made something like this a long time ago
So basically it downloads anything from basically any website which is supported by yt-dlp and aria2c
Coded using batch programming and I used Batch to Exe to convert to an .exe. and compressed using UPX but its still like 60mbs because ffprobe/ffmpeg take up like 140mb so upx helped bring that down.
also my first project. also if theres anything wrong with it tell me. if you think this is bad coding i'm only 15 lol
if you think its a virus then don't download it i honestly dc
