WAREZ a term used by software pirates use to describe a cracked game or application that is made available over the Internet, usually via FTP/IRC/P2P, often the pirate will make use of a site with lax security. Widely used in cracker subcultures to denote cracked version of commercial software, that is versions from which copy-protection has been stripped. Hackers recognize this term but don't use it themselves. The WAREZ mentality discussed in this article connotes the mindset of the hackers/crackers who make this copyrighted media available.

Warez are 100% full versions of popular PC Programs which are downloaded via the internet. Although it is heavily illegal, Warez are being distibuted thru the internet thru many sources as you read this. I suggest you stop and go out there and find some right now, you'll save lots of money and have fun doing so at the same time. Like they say, It's only illegal if you get caught. ^_^
I just warezed myself a copy of Windows XP, wanna copy?

pirated software. it's technically illegal but theres so many hundreds of thousands of people downloading every second of every day that the chances of getting caught are like dropping litter on the sidewalk; we have probably all done it and as long as you aren't a blatant retard and use some common sense you'll be fine.

also, 'warez' is one word, it isn't 'WAR-ez'.
a: do you download warez?
b: yes.

fbi: oh shi-
