Prolific warez scene group retires The prolific warez "scene" group ViRiLiTY has announced their voluntary retirement after releasing 8000 cracked software releases or keygens.
The group started in 2002 and their last release is a keygen for Ashampoo’s Core Tuner.

Says their final NFO:

"After more than seven years and over 8000 releases the time has come, so that we are going to close the curtain now. We would like to thank everyone who supported us in the last years and especially those who have been loyal for years! Thank you for the nice friendships and the fun we had with all of you. A big sorry to the high quality software developers who have been defeated by us. But you can relax now, because the real competition is gone ;) Its quite sad to see that 0DAYs today dir is getting more and more empty. We hope the future will bring some new talents to make the scene what it was a few years ago. Highly active, talented and with a strong competition between the groups. I would like to thank the group, active and former members, for the nice time we had and the more fun we are going to have as being part of the scenes history :) ViRiLiTY has always been a small but very strong group, which made ViRiLiTY the way it was. This is the the final release that has been dropped under the label of ViRiLiTY. So please shut down any types of open positions that are running under the name of ViRiLiTY. Otherwise we are going to hunt you down and cut your penis of.
Good Bye
ViRiLiTY 2002-2009"

RIP ViTaLiTY, "the MAN" always win's in the end. Your exploits where known throughout the fringes of society. You rode your "highhorse" long and hard. Your delusions of grandeur was what kept you warm at night. Now your "voluntary retirement" knowingly approved by "the MAN" is all that she wrote.

I think they may have decided to leave before they get busted and the silly season would have started for them. Jump before being pushed.

I'd have to say it would be that combined with the growth of the open sourse community over the past few years.

Yeah i too think that open source is one of the biggest reasons why many people have stopped using crackked/pirated software.. Most basic tools you need you can get for free and you dont have to download photoshop just because you want to edit your pictures little bit.

Yeahhhh, cracking tiny apps and other junk don't make you exactly 'prolific'. That be saying all the guys who ripped anime for the hell of it are prolific because they 100 dvds.
