Be warned that there’s a fake version of the Bad Piggies game out there for the Chrome browser, which is laden with malware.
Bad Piggies, as you might well be aware, is Rovio’s follow on to Angry Birds, which lets the player take the side of the pigs rather than the furious birds.
It came out on iOS and Android (along with Windows and Mac) formats at the end of last month, but as Sophos Security noted in a blog post, there’s no version for Google’s Chrome browser.
So malware authors have made fake versions, “free” games which installs nasty bits to your browser that can harvest surfing information and install adware.
There are, according to Sophos, no less than five versions of fake Bad Piggies Chrome apps, and doubtless there are more than this.
Apparently over 80,000 folks have been tricked into downloading and installing these fake games on their browser. So just bear in mind, Bad Piggies isn’t out for Chrome, and don’t install any app which claims to be the game.
