It never takes long does it? It’s come out that approximately 80,000 people have fallen for a malware infected version of Rovio’s latest mega-hit, Bad Piggies. The users downloaded a free version of the app called “Angry Birds Bad Piggies” for Google’s Chrome browser and in doing so they brought with it an unwanted plugin. The additional piece of software pushes advertisements on-screen when folks visit certain websites like MSN, Yahoo, eBay and others.
If anyone has fallen for the ploy, uninstall that bad boy pronto. After that, run the standard battery of antivirus and malware software. It’s also highly recommended to change passwords once again. After that, treat browser plugins like any mobile app and watch for those permissions. It also wouldn’t hurt to pony up the dough for the official developer’s app. Especially Rovio and Bad Piggies.
