Hackers hide malware in fake game...
Gamers downloading from Steam should beware of fake game pages, after a spate of clone titles were found on the service hiding harmful malware, reports SC Magazine.
A number of fake game listings were discovered this past weekend in the ?Concepts? section of Steam, posing as genuine games but, when clicked, linking the victim to a malware-infested download site. The game pages were made to look convincing and authentic, complete with official names, trailers, screenshots and descriptions.
One such fake page was disguised as the game ?Octopus City Blues? from the indie studio Ghost in a Bottle. Although the game?s developers reported the imposter as soon as they discovered it, after several days the phony page remains online and dangerous.
