cough and die = C = cow orker


[BBS & cracker cultures] A person who distributes newly cracked warez, as opposed to a server who makes them available for download or a leech who merely downloads them. Hackers recognize this term but don't use it themselves, as the act is not part of their culture. See also warez d00dz, cracker, elite.
