“Install this to get the password”


Ourpcgame(dot)net would like it if you downloaded some of their games.

In the above example we’re looking at Portal 2, though a wide selection is on offer. Under each game, there’s a “Click here for free download” link. Do that, and you’ll end up with two tantalisingly named folders: “CD Keys” and “Game Direct Links”.

Ooh. Except it isn’t so much “Ooh” as “wait, both of these stupid folders are password protected”. That’s right, you’re dealing with what we in the business like to call “bait”. The Readme says this:

“To know password do follow steps:

1. go to
2. Look on the left side. click on Babylon banner 
3. download the Babylon Toolbar which is 100% free and safe, install it. you will get  a message after completing the installation.
4. fifth word of that message is the password to open the game links folder.”

Yes. Of course it is.

These files are a little out of date, because the site now sports an eMule download instead. They were pulling this one back in July of 2010 (scroll down). Didn’t work then, either. You install the program regardless, hoping for some red hot password action:

Congratulations, you just installed eMule, Hotbar offer engine, blinkx beat, ShopperReports and QuestScan address bar search provider.

Now wait until the end of time for your free game passwords…
