Watch Dogs Hacked?

I have seen on a TV show in my country that the new Watch Dogs game has been hacked including a bitcoin miner to it, so that whoever play the game is mining bitcoin for some dudes.

"Tens of thousands of pirate gamers have been enslaved in a Bitcoin botnet after downloading a cracked copy of popular game Watch Dogs"

Players downloading the pirated torrent version of "Watch Dogs" risk getting a malware that mines the virtual currency Bitcoin, gaming site GameCrastinate.com reported."

That makes no sense. Simple : someone added a miner to the pirated version. Nothing got hacked. Btw, that's a bit old news.

Well this was the title I found the subject. And I've just seen this. I don't know if it's important or not but I think people should know.

That's why it's called pirated. They modify the game. With this case playing pirated watch dogs with miner only means that you are still paying the game but for free.

Not totally free you are paying with your CPU and GPU power to mine for other people so they earn money later of you :D

There was a version of the PC game which did have a BTC miner in it.
