The AES-256 or RSA-1028 cipher it uses to encrypt the documents is not decryptable with contemporary computers. Even quantum computers that already exist will spend hundreds of years to find the decryption key.

Above, you can see the example of such a message.

Nonetheless, using torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs likewise exposes you to a wide range of malware. Nobody can control undisclosed individuals who launch the torrent seeding or publish the hacked program version on the site with pirated software.
