Bad Piggies, the spinoff puzzle game to the insanely popular Angry Birds, was released on September 27. The game runs on Apple's iOS, Android, Windows, and Apple Mac. It is yet to be released for Google Chrome, and spammers have taken advantage of this opportunity.
Malware developers have created a Google Chrome fake version of Bad Piggies. Although the game looks like the official game, it is unplayable. According to the Chrome Web store, the fake game has been downloaded more than 8,000 times.
Spammers have used Google Chrome to distribute malware in the past. Fake Chrome applications have the capability of collecting data from user web sessions and can install plugins to monitor websites visited. As of the beginning of October, over 80,000 Chrome users have installed infected Chrome applications.
Security experts blame Google's process for confirming the legitimacy of an application. Google does not provide full security on the Chrome Web store for its users, and consequently, you must be cautious of what apps you download and install. If an app requests far too many permissions compared to their counterparts, you are better off not installing it.
