Is videogame the new channel to share virus and malware? It looks this is the risk when downloading pirated versions of Games of Thrones, https://www.pcmag.com/news/367529/pirating-game-of-thrones-that-file-is-probably-malware
Any experience with this?

Yes, or and now. Pirate games (and other kind of software) already existed in the 1980s and since then had been a source for viruses.

right, nothing really new with this. As illigal material it could be harmful. Games of Thrones is more a new trend for malware and virus. - Paolo 14 months ago
Agreed, new technologies, including AI are less a revolution than evolution. - Patrick 14 months ago
