There is apparently a cracked copy of Trillian Astra floating around Usenet and IRC – we’ve been given some preliminary feedback that this cracked copy of Astra contains a Trojan Horse designed to turn your computer into a remotely-controllable robot, among possible other things. More information on our forums (thanks, Nemon!)
Folks, we can’t stress this enough – please use extreme caution anytime you’re downloading software from untrusted sources, especially if there’s some form of crack or ‘loader’ involved. We did NOT authorize this release and it does NOT come from Cerulean Studios.
In happier news, Build 29 will be available later today. We will be adding another group of testers throughout the weekend.
