Cracked Silent Hunter 5

When looking for cracked games online, avid players may inadvertently download a malware cocktail onto their computers.

To protect the 5th part of Silent Hunter game from
piracy, its producers has implemented a new protection system, which not only
sparked discontent within the gamers’ community but also increased hackers’
desire to crack it. This coincides with gamers’ passionate hunt for a cracked
version of the game, which is clearly illustrated by the search statistics, in
which the “name of the game + cracked” combination ranks very high.

However, while engaging in this quest players are willingly
transforming themselves into sitting ducks for e-threats. A quick search on the
Internet over this very hot topic has revealed that no less than four different
breeds of malware accompany the returned results.
