Warnings have been published before about putting "foreign" disks into your PCs. If you receive an unsolicited disk in your office, (or your home) under no circumstances should you put the disk into your computer. It may contain a virus that could enter your system.
The magazine, 'Mobile Office' reports that pirating software can also be dangerous. According to a recent survey, 97.6% of PCs in China have been infected by viruses, primarily because of the use of copied software.
