When you are browsing the Internet and come across an Internet site that requires you to download a program, security warning banners such as those seen in public libraries may appear; sometimes you will see something along the lines of "this program may contain known viruses". If you're unsure what the virus is you can always double check by looking it up using one of the many popular search engines such as Google. The common misconception about this virus is that it requires a program installation to work. The fact of the matter is that this virus is actually installed as part of a Trojan named "warez", which comes from a Trojan named "bot".
Warez is just one type of warez and has nothing to do with software industry. However, many people believe this to be the case because they have found that this virus can be on their system without them knowing and without their knowledge. This is known as "malware", which stands for Malicious Ware. Warez is nothing more than a common form of warez, which is designed to trick users into thinking it is legitimate software and installable.
Warez has been around since the mid-1990s as a way for people to express themselves and challenge the boundaries of the traditional game industry. Cartel games were the most popular at the time and this hacker wanted to enable the game designers to add the ability to create more sophisticated and intricate programming which would be impossible if it was created as a normal program. It is possible to download a "hack" or "mod" for any given game that allows you to implement a different operating system, different game features, etc... However, the most popular "hack" is the one that allows you to crack a cracker, remove the protection from the original and install your own cracker, so that you can play the game normally.
