Short Bio

This is a generic detection for keygens.

Crack tools are a special kind of riskware. Riskware, in general, is a detection for items that are not strictly malicious, but pose some sort of risk for the user in another way. The use of keygens can have legal consequences in some countries and under some circumstances.

Common infection method

Keygens are often found on shady websites.


Malwarebytes can remove CrackTool.Agent.Keygen without further user interaction. Should users wish to keep it, they can add the detections to the exclusions list. Here’s how to do it.
