One of the most seeded copies of Watch Dogs available on file-sharing sites is said to install a Bitcoin mining virus on the PC that the game is downloaded to. This works away in the background using valuable PC resources for the uploader’s gain. Those who download the torrent may also experience blue screen crashes, general instability, and additional power consumption.
Run a virus scan immediately if you downloaded Watch Dogs and take a valuable lesson away from the experience.
Watch Dogs will be released (without bitcoin miners) on May 27th.
