PUBG Malware Discovered: Ransomware Forces You to Play PUBG

Share this:

A new type PUBG malware has been discovered, which forces players to open up PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and play for an hour. Ransomware is usually used to lock down a user’s files until they pay a certain of money, but this PUBG malware only asks that the game is played.

The PUBG malware message reads:

Your files is encrypted by PUBG Ransomware! But don’t worry! It is not hard to unlock it. I don’t want money! Just play PUBG 1Hours!

It isn’t clear if this PUBG ransomware is supposed to be a kind of joke, as it’s very simple to remove, according to experts anyway! We’d recommend being careful of what you’re downloading from the internet, as always!

In other PUBG news, the new Savage map was recently tested on the Closed Experimental Server, an argument as to whether PUBG is pay to win has been brought up again, and it’s been found that 30% of all PC gamers are playing battle royale titles.
