Pirated Software Detector

We've recently found a large list of pirated software downloads on one of the servers our clients use. Besides just looking at the list and guessing, are there any solid illegal software detectors out there that we could run to determine if the programs installed on the network or server itself are illegal? Thanks

I've not heard of such a detector, but a good virus/malware scanner may help.  Many cracked/pirated downloads include a keygen or otherwise altered executable that may trigger as a detection.

Hope that helps!

Unfortunately many of the programs on the list have since had their downloaded files deleted after install. So the keygen was used and then discarded. Most likely this was done from an external HDD.
