Here are the games in pirated versions most commonly used for hidden viruses

According to a report by security company Kaspersky, 5.8 million malware attacks disguised as PC video games have been reported in the past year. Of course, these are illegally distributed versions of PC games, ie pirated copies, but also modified installations of games that come from unofficial sources.

Kaspersky listed five games that are most commonly used to trick viruses, Trojans, and other malware through unofficial versions. It’s not at all surprising that these are very popular games, but it’s a bit surprising that one of them is free, and more of them on the list was also shared for free.

In any case, arguably the most malicious software is spreading through unofficial versions of Minecraft - close to half of the 5.8 million detected attacks are related to Minecraft. Here is the remaining list of the most frequently exploited games according to the Kaspersky report:

  • Minecraft - 3.01 million recorded attacks
  • The Sims 4 - 1.26 million
  • PUBG - 484 thousand
  • Fortnite - 267 thousand
  • GTA 5 - 187 thousand
