Dangers of browsing pirate sites

We have introduced alternative sites to dlbooks, but all of the sites we have introduced are so-called "pirate sites.

There are various dangers involved in browsing these pirate sites, and it is dangerous to enter them easily. Below is a detailed explanation of the dangers involved in entering pirate sites.

If you are interested in or wish to view any of the above sites, please be aware of the dangers before doing so.

Virus infection

Entering sites that violate copyright laws, such as free manga browsing sites, increases the risk of viruses.

Some pirate sites lie about being infected with viruses and lead you to virus-infected sites under the guise of removing the virus.

When you visit a site that violates copyright laws, there is a relatively high probability that you will see a pop-up message indicating that the site is infected with a virus. To prevent this from happening, do not click unnecessarily.

Phishing Scams

Viruses are not the only danger on pirate sites. There is also the danger of phishing scams.

Phishing is a malicious scam that uses the fear of a virus infection to lure you to a fake site and extract your mobile device or PC passwords, credit card information, and more.

The scary part of this phishing scam is that the victim is unaware that their information has been extracted until they become a victim. Even if you are directed to a site, do not click on the link.

Mining without permission

Pirate sites also have a danger called "mining. Mining is the creation of virtual currency on your computer or mobile device without your permission.

The scary part of mining is that the system for mining is automatically embedded.

When the mining system is activated, the computer will move more than necessary, behaving strangely and slowing down. The system can also drain the battery of your mobile device, so you need to be very careful.

Possibility of illegal downloading

Pirate sites are not limited to comic book sites, but also include video sites that violate copyright laws. It is relatively likely that a pirate site will have a button to download its content.

If you download content from a pirate site that violates copyright law, it is very likely that the act is also illegal.

Please be careful never to press the download button on a pirate site just because you can download it.
