The folks promoting the package marketed it as an “effective” strategy to unfold malware and “some nice bait for your first malware project.” The sellers have additionally posted YouTube movies that promote the package and clarify methods to use it.

Activision’s report got here on the identical day that Cisco’s Talos safety group disclosed a brand new malware marketing campaign focusing on avid gamers who use cheats. The malicious cheats used a beforehand unknown cryptor software that prevented antivirus packages from detecting the payload. Talos didn’t establish the sport titles that had been focused.
