Default Discounted Software

I see full versions of Adobe PS CS4 and other Adobe software advertised on the web for less than what an upgrade costs. What is the catch?

The catch is that it's probably pirated (illegal) software, and likely contains viruses/spyware, too. Another catch is that you're giving your credit card information to someone that may be a thief ready to empty your bank accounts, max out your credit card limits, etc.
