had a scary thought

December 29th, 2013 11:34 am

with all these games im rating and offline exes what is stopping someone from having a bogus game on top of something more sinister ..like as im playing the game it is quietly deleting files in the background from random places it finds etc..

 

surely it wouldn’t be hard to write something to do that..im sure i could ..or maybe im missing something heh

 

was just a thought as it has just dawned on me..  i suppose its all just based on a trusting community thing?! ..some people are just evil at heart tho

 

i hope im not giving anyone any ideas heh ;p

    There’s a game like that already. It’s a space invaders type game that deletes a file for every invader you kill. Needless to say, it wasn’t that popular – and that’s why you haven’t heard of it!

    Just run them in a VM, it’s not that much of a hassle.
