Fake ClickTeam Bonus Pack - Warning!
News posted 9th May, 2009 by Rikus  
Recently I got a email from Jeff at clickteam that is worrying me a little. Apparently there are fake clickteam bonus packs going around that are asking you to put in your MMF/TGF serial number. After you type in your serial the number is uploaded to a ftp server. Pirates/Hackers can steal valid serial numbers this way.

When installing a valid bonus pack you are Never asked for your serial number only when you install the software is this needed. When you contact clickteam they might ask you for it but thats it. Also it is wise to download all clickteam software and updates from the official website. So just to let everyone know that these fake bonus packs are out there and people are trying to install them.

I dont understand how people get hold of "fake" clickteam updaters!? Surely everyone goes to to update the clickteam software...??

Or is that just too obvious?

Obviously not, but i do agree with you - it just makes sense!

Clever girl.

Maybe some people download them from other sites?

What I wonder is why people would want serial numbers. That's like getting IP addresses.

If I'm not mistaken some of the bonus packs for MMF 1.5 ask you for your serial number, And I got them from the official Clickteam site. I'll check that and confirm.

Maybe you should specify this is only for MMF 2, some of us still use MMF 1.5 and those bonus pack do ask for your serial number, they even check it if it's right, which I assume the fake ones cannot do.
