    Can you please edit additional information into the question. Also please specify what you want to do with the font and why you wish to know. Please note that we do not like to assist in illegal activities.

If the font is being redistributed illegally, you're still liable for using it without a valid licence. The probability of getting caught depends on how you use it, but it is still illegal.
