AWI warns of cracked browsers
Written by Awportals.com
Active Worlds has begun a set of notices warning users against using cracked browsers by claiming they will install viruses.

The cracked browsers; such as AwHack and such use memory modification to grant additional abilities such as flying, shifting etc regardless of if they are enabled in the world.

[quote=AW Newsletter]Has someone offered you a version of AW that has all kinds of cool extra features? Have they promised you that it will make AW run faster? Have you visited a web site or a world and downloaded one of these "cracked" AW browsers? We really hope not!

While some creative people have found different ways to "crack" AW, we must urge everyone to show COMMON SENSE and CAUTION when approached or offered these programs. What you may not realize is that by downloading and installing these programs you may be exposing your computer to a virus, sharing your passwords with total strangers, or giving them access to your computer in general.
