You would be more lovable if you quit pirating and pay for software that you want.

While there are no viruses for the Mac, there are Trojans and they are definitely to be found in pirated software. So yes, you could "knacker" your new Mac from the very first day.

Aside that, discussions pertaining to illegal content is not allowed on this forum. From our Community Guidelines:

Quote:
Respect copyrights and the law.
Don’t discuss or conduct content theft or any other illegal activity. Period. We follow U.S. law on the forums, so just because something might be legal in your country doesn’t mean it will be allowed here. If you’re ever in doubt, contact one of the moderators before you post.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
